I read this book in the fourth grade. As a child "Andre" the book and movie, were very important to me!

Whole different story now that I'm an assistant Wildlife Rehabber.

It does seem, the way the book reads, that Andre was just special. And a rare case. I'd like to find more information about him.

The only thing I found difficult was that although I've lived in Maine my whole life, I don't live on the coast, and there are a few phrases and words he uses that I had to look up.
