Peg and the Whale: Reviews

A whale of a tale... An ALA Booklist Editors' Choice for 2000

"Children will like the way the illustrations splash across the pages, the tale's delightful humor, and the wonderful rhythm of the words."-- Booklist

"This outrageous story never misses a beat, and the feisty, red-headed Peg is in a league with other modern tall-tale heroines such as Anne Isaac's Swamp Angel and the star of Diane Stanley's Saving Sweetness.... A whale of an adventure story with a thoroughly likable heroine." -- School Library Journal

"Gather up your tall-tale lovers -- this one's bound to make a splash." -- The Bulletin "A whale of a tale, full of humour and Jonah-esque allusions." -- The Globe and Mail

"Fans of Edward C. Day's John Tabor's Ride, or Alexis O'Neill's Loud Emily, will delight in this new nautical yarn." -- Kirkus.
