I liked this story about a sailor who is finding himself. The tale starts with young boy who loves the sea and feels at home on the open water. He had an upsetting day on the water and gave up water for good and went inland. While he was inland, he was sad and he cried the Great Lakes.

It took great strength and some ingenuity for him to win [...]

My students always love this story, and I love teaching it. It lends itself perfectly to a unit on writing tall tales.

This book is about a captain that has sailed the seven seas. Stormy started as a young boy and grew up fast. When he was 10 years old he was an excellent sailor.

Stormalong decided to build the biggest ship that has ever been built and then he continues to sail the sea.
This was an interesting tale but good. his ship wouldnt fit anywhere so he kept trying diferent ways and his crew kept having to get off and do different tasks to get the ship places and finally the ship got into the boston harbor and everyone was happy. it was a good book and had neat pictures and is a different tale that many children dont hear
This book is about a young boy who grows up to be a great sailor on the sea. He meets a lot of different animals as he grows up sailing on the sea. By the end of the story, he builds the biggest and greatest ship to ever sail the sea.
its very exageret but it is very funny i like it
Stormalong lived for the sea and he was the best knot tier around. He cried the Salt Lake in Utah. He beat a steam boat with his underwear and lungs. He shot himself straight into outer space.
Not my style of illustrations of writing.
