Burt Dow, Deep Waterman

McCloskey, Robert

© 1963

 

A tall tale about a modern-day Jonah, McCloskey's love of Maine and its people drive the illustrations and the prose in this humorous look on an old story. This story is based on real people that McCloskey knew in the real area of Deer Island. Burt Dow and his giggling gull make for a memorable and funny story.
