      My mom read this book to me while I was at the library and she loved it The illustrations are really cute and the story is simple, but funny A whale has taken over a child s kiddie pool and the mother doesn t even notice A great board book that I, as a 2 year old, didn t quite get, but would be funny as I got older.

      Definitely going to use this in a future storytime It s a little silly but there are some awesome things in it that will help with interacting with the preschoolers There s counting and silly suggestions and little funny things tucked in on the pages that, while small, are still large enough that most of the group will be able to see for examplee shark fin in the pool next door.

    11. Ashley Adkins says:
      Very simple text and art which makes for a good read for some of the youngest readers The art really reminds me of Hello Kitty simple with bright colors I did not think the text was very strong but that could be the point.

      A boy goes to swim in his kiddie pool and there is a giant whale in it He tries various ways to get him out, such as luring him with a fish, bulldozing him, and talking up the neighbors larger pool, but the whale never budges, or speaks for that matter Just smiles back at the boy Just when the boy is about to give up the whale does the only thing it actually does in the whole book, it blows water out of its blowhole The boy then grabs his inner tube and gets his water fix that way and is content [...]

    21. Jenna says:
      Another ridiculously cute book The writing wasn t as smooth, as it was mostly disjointed dialogue, but I could see fans of Elephant and Piggy enjoying this book, due to the sparse text and minimal drawing style The kids loved this book as well and laughed all the way through My favorite was when the boy tries to lift the whale out of his wading pool with a crane, and one kid shouted How did he get that crane it costs 700 he couldn t afford it since, you know, that s the real question when it com [...]

    22. Jeff Harris says:
      This book may not explain HOW a giant WHALE ended up in the little boy s swimming pool, or why the boy s mother seems less than freaked out that such an extraordinary event has occurred, but it doesn t need to it s still extremely funny Kids will have a lot of fun coming up with different ideas for how to get the whale out of the pool but will any of them actually prove successful The twist ending made this book even of a fun read and sets things up nicely for a sequel or for kids to write thei [...]
