Reviews

"A simple, matter-of-fact story about friendship. Lovely watercolor pictures and a funny, well-written text which presents its plot coincidences in tongue-in-cheek manner fit together admirably in this faintly Aesopian tale." --Starred, School Library Journal

"There is no question that Steig's affectionately witty pictures and perfectly complementary narration make this a durable picture book friendship." --Kirkus Reviews

"The book is funny and earnest, pellucid and profound." --The New York Times Book Review

"A simple, matter-of-fact story about the friendship between a mouse and a whale. . .Lovely watercolor pictures and a funny, well-written text which presents its plot coincidences in tongue-in-cheek manner fit together admirably in this faintly Aesopian tale." --Starred, School Library Journal
