I Won a What? Reviews
This is a sweet story of a boy and his pet whale. Their relationship reminded me of the relationship I have with my cat. We do everything together. We love to sing and bathe and read together. He liked the illustration style of this book. On one page, he sat down right on the illustration! I couldn't stop laughing. I love him, and I love this book. Buy it.
Loved the book. Kids and adults will enjoy

Huh. With all the focus on orcas, of late, I was expecting a conservationist message. But this is just a silly little book, and that's fine.
What a super cute and fun book! I really enjoyed it even giggling at a few parts. When my son saw it we had to read it together and he giggled too. Why? Ok the idea of going to a fair thinking you'll win a cute little goldfish only to walk away with a whale!! And of course just thinking of the absurdity of that makes you giggle in more! Think of keeping a whale as a pet. Wouldn't that be a riot. Now wait don't send PETA after me I'm thinking of the way it's done in this book - where you keep it in a pool in your back yard and he loves it! It's just one of those stories that takes a concept so far that the absurdity of it just takes into the realm of pure silliness.
I Won a What?
Interesting story about ups and downs of having a whale as a pet. The relationship between the main character and his parents was realistic and unusual for children's books. The well-written text feels like an Audrey Vernick book, but the language is more straightforward than many of her others. The story is mostly just sweet, not particularly surprising. But it has a cute" button" ending and lively, colorful, expressive illustrations.
