After packing a huge lunch, Mr. Magee and his little dog, Dee set off in their boat for a relaxing day on the
water. But what begins as a fun day in the sun turns into a bumpy ride, when one bored little whale swims up to
give their boat a friendly nudge hello. Soon the brave sailors that were once floating on the sea find
themselves flying high above it, heading straight for a tree!
"Van Dusen's exacting verse and kitschy, perfectionistic gouaches make this one whale of a tale."
~ Publishers Weekly
"Van Dusen's sing-song, rhyming story makes for an agreeable read- aloud while his cheerful, candy-colored cartoon illustrations provide equal fun for the eye."
"A strong debut for Van Dusen"
