Review: Burt Dow, Deep-Water Man

User Review  - Bryce - Goodreads

We skip over a page and a half about nausea and make our own prose for a "tickling yummy" instead of the "whale of a burp." Read full review

Review: Burt Dow, Deep-Water Man

User Review  - Jessica - Goodreads

It's just a fun silly book... a little different that other McCloskey books. But the adventure was fun. My five year old sat for the whole thing and never asked me to stop. Win! Read full review

About the author (1989)

Robert McCloskey (1914-2003) wrote and illustrated some of the most honored and enduring children's books ever published. He grew up in Hamilton, Ohio, and spent time in Boston, New York, and ultimately Maine, where he and his wife raised their two daughters. The first ever two-time Caldecott Medal winner, for Make Way for Ducklings and Time of Wonder, McCloskey was also awarded Caldecott Honors for Blueberries for Sal, One Morning in Maine, and Journey Cake, Ho! by Ruth Sawyer.  He was declared a Living Legend by the Library of Congress in 2000.  You can see some of his best-loved characters immortalized as statues in Boston's Public Garden and Lentil Park in Hamilton, Ohio.
