Synopsis

Bert and I for Kids of All Ages by Marshall Dodge, Robert Bryan

Three of Marshall Dodge's and Robert Bryan's original Bert and I stories make up this book of old-time classic and not-always-politically-correct Maine humor. The stories and wonderful color illustrations by Edith Heyck should appeal to children and to all who are young at heart, and include By a Fluke, in which Bert and the narrator lose their boat in a collision with a whale; The Pet Turkey, which is the story about how a boy gets attached to a turkey he and his father raised for a holiday feast; an Gagnon, Champion Moose Caller, a tall tale from Maine's French heritage in which Gagnon exercises his uncanny ability to communicate with moose in some interesting places.This is a fun book to read aloud, and Marshall Dodge's and Robert Bryan's evocations of moose calling and other Maine shenanigans are reminiscent of Dr. Seuss's poetry for children.
