" Action and suspense tale told in rhyme provide a fun read for youngsters with fun, colorful illustrations.Chris Van Dusen does a great 'visiting author' presentation at our elementary school, and still have an affordable price for Maine schools! " said.

" Fun adventure with Mr. Magee and his little dog Dee. The illustrations are well done and colorful. Most of the rhymes were smooth and fun to read. However, the last couplet just felt lame compared to the excitement of the rest of the book. " said.

" Not my favorite Chris Van Dusen book but good all the same. The story is always fun and the pictures are great!! Good for a read-a-loud or for an older reader. I love MR. Magee camping spree and this book was a let down. I do like how that whales save him in the end!!! " said.

" A very charming rhyme about Mr. Magee and his dog Dee going down to the sea for a day of boating. They come across some whales, and a more mischievous whale ends up derailing all the plans they had for the day.Delightful illustrations. " said.

" 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.
