Summary
Befriended by a whale as he is drowning in the ocean, a mouse gets a chance to reciprocate years later in an equally unlikely situation.
Amazon.com description: Product Description:

Amos el ratón y Boris la ballena: un par de amigos leales con nada en común excepto un buen corazón y la voluntad de ayudar a su colega mamífero. Se conocen luego de que Amos se lanza al mar en su bote fabricado por él mismo, el Roedor, y pronto se encuentra en la extrema necesidad de ser rescatado. Aparece Boris. Pero llegará el día, mucho después de que Boris haya vuelto a su vida balleneante y Amos a su vida ratoneante, en que el pequeño ratón deba buscar una forma de socorrer a la gran ballena.

Tierna y cómica a la vez, la historia de esta amistad ha sido registrada en un texto y unas ilustraciones que son un modelo de rica simplicidad. Aquí, con aparente desenvoltura y un virtuosismo disimulado, William Steig, premiado con la medalla Caldecott, da vida a dos héroes triunfantes.
