" The kids loved it. They have even asked me to find more Mr. Magee books. The rhyming verse hooked them from the start, and they enjoyed the colorful illustrations. They also had fun making predictions at different point in the story. " said.

" Love the cartoon-style illustrations (dogs and hats on every page made it a fave with my toddler). I have a weakness for stories told in verse, and this was a particularly fun-to-read and entertaining one. " said.

" Considering it has our last name (spelled correctly) and is a tale of Mr. Magee and his dog and their fishing exhibition - well, it is the perfect fit. A great easy to read, fun children's book. The whole Mr. Magee series is fantastic but this with the fishing/dog inclusion is a perfect fit for our family. FUN! " said.

" Extraordinary illustrations. The composition, design and color are great. It makes it all exciting and very professional. I'm not a big fan of rhyming books but this was actually very fun to read as an adult. It surely is a great collection to have as a paperback too. The kids had lots of fun, the story incited their imagination and discussion. I love a great children's book with a lot of improbable and surreal adventures. " said.

" One of my favorite kid books to read with my daughter. Illustrations are beautiful and it has a fun rhyming rhythem while keeping you connected to the story. His others are pretty good too; Camping Spree and Learning to Ski. But The Down to the Sea is our favorite.On a side note; I ordered the book on Amazon and when I received it I found it was autographed by the author! What a treasure keeper. " said.

"I am a huge fan of all the Mr. Magee books! Be sure to check them all out. Mr. Magee and his dog Dee set out in their boat for a calm day on the water. While they admire a pod of whales, a stray comes up from underneath their boat and gives a big blow. The boat goes flying through the air and lands in a tree. Eventually, the whales come to their rescue and Mr. Magee and Dee return safely home after their crazy adventure. The momentum of the story is fast, and the rhyming text is sure to delight children. " said.

DOWN BY THE SEA WITH MR. MAGEE
Review
------------------------------
Nowhere near the sea,
A different book next to me,
I did discover
This book by its cover.

Mr. Magee looks so sweet!
The illustrations? Just neat!
The story so magical!
The adventure so whimsical!

But, hark! Oh, the grammar!
A misspelling! Oh, my!
Give four stars the hammer.
Only three stars! Sigh!

Little book you are great!
Few kids will you agitate!
Your story is far from real,
But even kids know that's the deal.

So, sit back and enjoy the ride.
With a kid and a doggy by your side.
This book you'll not regret,
And neither will your pet.
" said.

" I think that Down to the Sea with Mr. Magee is a cute rhyming story. I liked it. It didn't register at all on my niece and nephew's radar. They were not interested. I was surprised, because I know that they liked some of Chris Van Dusen's other works, such as The Circus Ship and If I Built a Car. This one lacks some of the dazzle of Circus Ship or If I Built a Car, but still, I thought they'd enjoy the story. Huh. Go figure. " said.
