Vernick, Audrey I Won a What? Illustrated by Robert Neubecker PICTUREBOOK. Alfred A. Knopf, 2016. $17.99.
When a boy’s parents give him permission to try his luck at the carnival’s goldfish booth, he wins the biggest prize of all - A Whale! Good thing they have a huge swimming pool to put him in.
Although improbable and not environmentally appropriate, this story of a friendship between a whale and a boy is hilarious and sweet. I fun read, reminding me of Danny and the Dinosaur. Suspend disbelief and buy this book.
