thar she blows! vintage whale book goodness

I'm a big Robert McCloskey fan (who isn't?), but I had no idea about Burt Dow, Deep-Water Man until a few weeks ago. (Shameful, I know. And I call myself a book blogger...)

Have you read it? The story is wonderful, but again, it's the pictures that really get me. Here are some for your viewing pleasure. (Our whale project yesterday reminded me of this book.)

This poor whale gets his tale caught on Burt's hook.

Burt fixes it with a band-aid!
bandaged whale tail
Not just any band-aid--a peppermint striped one.

Which only makes all the other whales jealous--you can't blame them--I kind of want a peppermint striped band-aid now, too.

These photos were taken as we were reading the book one afternoon--so I had a little helper with me. :)

Have you seen this book? The colors are so beautiful. I hope your library has a copy.

Have a wonderful weekend!
