"This book is a tale of an unlikely friendship between a whale and a mouse. One day, the mouse fulfilled his dream of sailing the ocean. He built a ship and sailed the sea, only to fall into the ocean and lose his ship. Boris, the whale, helps him get home by letting him stay on his back during the trip. Amos the mouse and Boris the whale became fast friends and told each other about themselves. Boris delivered his friend to the shore of his home and went on his way. Then, a hurricane washed Boris onto the shore where Amos lived. Amos and his elephant friends helped Boris get back into the water. In the end, Boris went on his way and shed tears because they may not see each other ever again. I would use this book to teach students about friendship. It does not matter what race, ethnicity, and culture you are from, everyone can become friends and treat each other kindly. Two unlikely people may become friends because we all have something in common. " said.

" Amos, a mouse, decides to set sail in a boat and see the world. But he is shipwrecked and adrift in the ocean with nothing to help him. Suddenly, Boris, the whale, appears. " said.

" We just loved this book about friendship! " said.

" Dangerous book to read out loud, I get teary eyed just thinking about it " said.

" This is a nice story in and of itself, but it is so damn long that young children will be looking for something else to do about 1/3 of the way through. " said.

" This story was so beautifully done. I appreciated the simplicity and the artful word play. It was very moving. " said.

" A nice story but quite wordy for reading aloud. I like that it doesn't shy away from using some bigger words, though. " said.

" Another classic -- the relationship of two unlikely mammals- a mouse and a whale, filled with adult vocabulary and fabulous illustrations telling the age of tale of how friends can help each other, regardless of size or outward appearance. " said.
