Publisher's Summary

Burt catches himself a lot more than a fish when he and his trusty boat, the Tidely-Idely, put out to sea. A whale of a tale!

Children's Story for Adults

Children's story? Sure, but it's written so well that I've enjoyed it each time my kids listen to it. Brimming with nautical terms and a fun story, I highly recommend this for your library - kids will definitely learn while enjoying. "AUDIBLE 20 REVIEW SWEEPSTAKES ENTRY"

Oops! I downloaded a children's book by mistake!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A really cute children's audio book but not so exciting for a senior citizen.

What was most disappointing about Robert McCloskey’s story?

I must be sure to listen to a sample before blindly downloading a book.

Have you listened to any of Tim Sample’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Tim Sample's narration was excellent.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Burt Dow?

None.
