    One thought on “Amos and Boris”

    1. A book that has been read to me countless times, I can proudly state that I no longer cry whenever I read this Nowadays I simply wish that we all had friends like Amos and Boris.

    2. I have been reading William Steig s works ever since I was little and now I have just recently read his most heartwarming book yet, Amos and Boris Amos and Boris is a children s book by William Steig which is about a small and adventurous mouse named Amos who finds a friend in a huge whale named Boris when Amos was lost at sea and Boris saves his life Amos and Boris is truly a beautiful children s book that will be an instant favorite among children for many years Oh my goodness I have to catch [...]

    3. I loved this book It s one of those that defies review, because I can t quite put into words what touched me so deeply about this It s a tale of an unlikely friendship, between an adventuresome mouse and a whale who finds him when his little ship is wrecked They learn from one another, and the friendship opens their eyes to things in the world they would never have noticed on their own Others may not be so touched by the ineffable warmth and wisdom I felt in this tale, but for me it s a treasure [...]

    4. Oh, I can t believe this gem of a book has been available for nearly 40 years and I m finding it thanks to friend Kathryn only now I just loved it.This is the story of an adventurous mouse, and he gets into trouble on his ocean voyage and meets up with a whale Amos the mouse and Boris the whale have a lovely friendship, including helping one another in each of their times of need It s a very sweet friendship story Both mammals, one living on land and one living in the sea, each have a lot to sha [...]

    5. This is a really sweet little book from William Steig, one of the best authors of children s literature ever His prose is full of little gems of language my favorite is when he describes a beached whale as being breaded with sand this is perhaps the only picture book to use the word phosphorescent His illustrations stick with a simple color palette made up mostly of blue, orange, and brown, nothing showy but tremendously effective, especially in some of the panoramic pictures I don t even want t [...]

    6. Didn t know until later, though maybe I read too much into it, that this was an allegory for a friendship I had the friend being the one who gifted me that book in the first place Its about adventure and taking risks and finding friends Its silly and lovely and still makes me a bit weepy at the end.

    7. One of our favorite books ever I cried pretty much every time I read this to to my children Beautiful story.

    8. I read this book with the 3rd grade class I worked with this week It s short, but definitely gets its message of love, friendship, and loyalty across in those few pages I ll admit the ending got me a bit verklempt choked with emotion Great story to read aloud to grades K 4, but hopefully if you do, you won t be as emotional as me when reading the ending

    9. William Steig was enthusiastically recommended to me years ago by a relative, for my children, and we now have a number of his books One of my favourites is Amos Boris, where an industrious little mouse sets off on an intrepid voyage across the sea, with unexpected results The mouse Amos builds himself a boat, studies navigation, and then stocks it up with all kinds of useful provisions, including a compass, sextant, cheese, biscuitsd a needle and thread for mending torn sails However, one night [...]

    10. This is a nice story in and of itself, but it is so damn long that young children will be looking for something else to do about 1 3 of the way through.

    11. What business do a whale and a mouse have becoming friends None, some would say yet Amos and Boris together somehow form one of the truly beautiful friendships in the recent history of literature Their connection is one of symbiotic ponderance, in which they talk with each other about their mutually exclusive habitats and, linked together, see the majesty of the world around them through eyes that neither has on his own Amos, the mouse, meets Boris, the whale, under far less than ideal circumsta [...]

    12. This is a wonderful tale of friendship and karma The two friends, Amos and Boris, meet by chance and form a friendship for a lifetime, even though Amos must live on land and Boris must live in the ocean Another chance encounter strengthens the bonds of their friendship I picked this out because of my Dad and I love the fact that the story is as old as I am We have enjoyed other stories by William Steig we loved Sylvester and the Magic Pebble and read it over and over We also really enjoyed Brave [...]

    13. This was very good I loved part where Amos is enchanted by the beauty and mystery of the world One night, in a phosphorescent sea, he marveled at the sight of some whales spouting luminous water and later, lying on the deck of his boat gazing at the immense, starry sky, the tiny mouse Amos, a little speck of a living thing in the vast living universe, felt thoroughly akin to it all Amos is o verwhelmed by the beauty and mystery of everything At one point, Amos contemplates death and heaven Boris [...]

    14. I think one of my favorite children s books ever The adventurous rat s boat sinks while he s sailing the world he s saved by a whale and they spend time together and make friends while the whale takes him to shore on his back They have a sad goodbye, but a few years later, the whale washes up on shore and the rat has the opportunity to save the whale s life A great story about unlikely friendship

    15.

    16. This is one of the sweetest childen s stories ever Two unlikely friends in Amos and Boris end up helping each other out, one in the ocean and the other on land The story is really charming, and the illustrations are very cute There s a nice lesson in this book for children, but it ll make adults smile too

    17. Sweet re imagining of The Lion and the Mouse, but including a story of friendship I get the impression that although the Lion and Mouse helped each other out and respected each other, they weren t really close pals.

    18. Another classic the relationship of two unlikely mammals a mouse and a whale, filled with adult vocabulary and fabulous illustrations telling the age of tale of how friends can help each other, regardless of size or outward appearance.

    19. I just read this delightful book to my godson and may have been entertained than he was The language is beautiful and the story wonderfully unique and touching We both adored it Read this to your children, asap.

    23. This book was written in a time when storybooks were just that storybooks It tells a story of the friendship of a mouse and a whale How two unlikely mammals came together and how each saved the others lives years apart But how each held the other in their heart as their best friend.

    24. Summary Amos goes to find his fortune at sea, but when things go wrong, who will save him Why I Read This It was recommended by a friend.Review It was cute It reminded me of Aesop s Fables It seemed a little bit long winded for the content.
