Strong female protagonist, gripping account of survival on a lifeboat, and a welcome fleshing-out of Ahab as someone more than a maniac pacing the deck.

My 9 year old son loves this book, and I enjoy listening for the laughter as he reads it. He says I can read it when he's done!

One of my little boy's favorites. A dear, sweet book about a child and a grownup sharing their day together. A nice thing is that the big penquin could be the child's parent, grandparent, or other caretaker. My son says, "I love the book!"
