I had mixed feelings about this book after reading it. I like the descriptive language and the plot of the book, however, I did not like the length of it. The language provided many adjectives such as, “chubby smokestack.” In addition there were similes throughout the entire book, for example,

“…a volley of smoke balls which bubbled over his wake like balloons.” In addition, the plot of the story is motivating and suspenseful. This story creates drama that makes the reader wonder if Little Toot will make it. However, because Little Toot does become a hero, the book proves motivation and determination. Although the story has its pros, I think the length was a bit too long and some of the pages in the book were unnecessary. Some of the text drags out the drama, which could bore a reader and make them not as engaged. Overall, this was an engaging book!
