    18. One of many books that are all masterfully presented by Stephen Kellogg Fink is the keelboatman version of John Henry, standing up to the impeding technology of the steam engine, this time housed in a steamboat Fink s story isn t as sad as Henry s at the end, but up until then, the two of them had a lot in common This was a fun read The illustrations are the highlight, but the text is good Well done all around.

    19. Mike does not like being indoors at all and first escapes when he is two days old He dreams of working as a keelboatman He was skilled at shooting the family gun, Bang All Wrestling with Carpenter led him to the Rocky Mountains After wrestling with the bears, Mike was ready for a rematch Mike won and worked on the boat.

    20. This is a tale that has a Paul bunion twist to it I feel this type of story, with the super strength and doing unrealistic activities with animals is very repetitive Although it was a decent story, I felt I could easily predict what was going to happen in the story This book would be great to use as a compare and contrast to similar books.

    21. This is a fun tall tale that starts off with an author s note to give information about keelboatman Mike Fink is the strongest one, and considered the King of the Keepboatmen My students enjoyed this tall tale and discussing what could be real, and what is a big stretch.

    22. Mike Fink has to get the strength to fight of the carpenter to become the King of the Keelboatmen This would be a good read about fantasy I really liked the descriptive language and the ability for students to infer what is going to happen next.

    23. This is the tall tale of Mike Fink and his quest to becoming a keelboat man He loves to wrestle and does this with several people and creatures to get the strength to beat the carpenter to become a keelboat man.

    24. Interesting because even though its a tall tale it takes place on the Mississippi and weaves in history how the steamboats replaced the jobs of the keelboat men and also the story of how the right to wear a red feather in your cap came to be.

    25. Mike Fink is another tall tale enhanced and brought to life by Steven Kellogg s colorful and detailed illustrations Thanks to the retelling of this story and the accompanying illustrations of life along the Mississippi and keelboating, I want to pick up a Mark Twain book

    26. A very cute tall tale with great illustrations by Steven Kellogg The hyperbole He leaped up and down on the bed with such force that he catapulted throught the roof It also had repetion of a phrase that always included, Cock a doodle doo

    27. i really want to read this because it sounds so interesting after i am done reading mike fink i will rate this agin
