    1.

    2. This is essentially a different take on the story of Pinocchio the black version of Pinocchio if you will The tale of a brave whale hunter, Galleon Keene, who crafts a wooden boy after losing his leg to a great whale monster that terrorizes the oceans Galleon could not be pleased when the wooden boy whom he names Peggony Po comes to life and is adamant about carrying on his Father s legacy of hunting down the great and terrifying whale Although Peggony Po is young and small, to everyone s delig [...]


    3. Summary This is a sea going story of a young boy on a whaling ship who finally captures the great whale Cetus, who has escaped the capture of many sailors before.Response I really enjoyed this story I am not usually drawn to stories of ships and sea adventures, and I enjoyed trying something outside my usual interests The language is delightful there is a wonderful rhythm to it and a real energy in the structure The illustrations wonderful as well with the feeling of old woodcuts they capture th [...]


    4. In my head, Peggony Po A Whale of a Tale is the anti Moby Dick tale even though I ve never read Moby Dick nor do I want to for obvious reasons.


    5. This is a nice tale which also features African American protagonists There was a bit of Pinocchio to it, and also some of Moby Dick Regardless, I both appreciated the story and also the thought and effort the author put into making something that promoted positive African American americana The art was colorful and whimsical Plus, whaling is just so cool, a part of the development of so many nations It s nice to have a children s book that addresses that aspect of history.


    6. I felt like this story was really odd, nothing that I particularly fell in love with It is about a boy made out of wood who captures a whale This book gives hope to those who are small, and shows that we all have the capabilities to do anything Can help children understand that determination makes a difference.


    7. I liked the pictures I thought it was a little strange that the sailor made a son out of wood It just seemed kind of funny to me.Peggony Po the wood son captures the whale and the whale dies I don t like how the whale was washed up onto the shore and then eaten by the crew I became attached to the whale and wanted him to escape rather than having Peggony Po capture him.


    8. This was somewhat strange At first I thought of Pinocchio based on the wooden boy but it wasn t like a variation of that I also expected a slightly different ending Oh well, interesting illustrations.


    9. This is a fun and informative book with lively sea shanties and illustrations that capture the essence of life at sea on a whaler I like the fun, folktale feel of the story and the fantastic feats by the wooden boy Our girls enjoyed this story a lot.


    10. Shyam says he loves this book He likes that there are pirates in it and he loves that the whale gets chased under the water FYI, mama did not like this book at all It s about hunting whales and so of course, this one didn t sit well with the animal rights loving vegetarian.


    11. This books has a fun rhythm and tone for students, but much of the material seemed to confuse my 2nd grade class I like the use of pirates on the sea to catch their attention, and the African American characters are definitely not typical of a pirate book.




    12. Interesting and outlandish The kind of story I might have loved as a boy Illustrations were wonderful even if one note.
