I didn't think I was going to like this as much as Pagoo and Paddle but we got to the end of the book and were all a little choked up. I just love Holling C Holling. The illustrations are always wonderful and the story is always poignant. The kids loved it too.

A seabird carved by Ezra Borwn while a child on a whaling ship, gets passed down generation to generation, son to son.
The story of the family business changing from whaling, to clippers, to steam engines, to oil-burning is fascinating.

Loved reading through this story about a history through a family's eyes. So much information about whaling and more in surprisingly few pages that perfectly captures the lives of the characters within. Really a treasure.
