About the Author:

William Steig (1907 - 2003) was a prolific American cartoonist, sculptor and, later in life, an author of popular children's literature. Most noted for the books Sylvester and the Magic Pebble, Abel's Island and Doctor De Soto, he also created the character Shrek, who inspired the popular movie series.

Review:

"Un cuento simple y directo acerca de la amistad. Las hermosas acuarelas y un texto divertido y bien escrito que presentan de un modo accesible las coincidencias del argumento se adaptan admirablemente a esta caracteristica fabula esopica."--starred, "School Library Journal"
"Sin lugar a duda los dibujos ingeniosamente afectuosos de Steig y la perfecta narracion complementaria hacen que este sea un amistoso y duradero libro ilustrado."--"Kirkus Reviews"
"El libro es divertido e intenso, claro y profundo."--the "New York Times"
"There is no question that Steig's affectionately witty pictures and perfectly complementary narration make this a durable picture book friendship."--"Kirkus Reviews"
"The book is funny and earnest, pellucid and profound."--"The New York Times Book Review"
* "A simple, matter-of-fact story about the friendship between a mouse and a whale. . . . Lovely watercolor pictures and a funny, well-written text which presents its plot coincidences in tongue-in-cheek manner fit together admirably in this faintly Aesopian tale."--"School Library Journal", Starred Review
