"A tautly constructed narrative about a fisherman's son who wishes to free a whale from the net his father depends on for his livelihood." --New York Times Book Review

"[An] inspiring, humane adventure... Bravo for a courageous boy's achievement."--Kirkus Reviews

I Am Pan

"If ever there was a god of fun, here he is . . . no mythtake." -Kirkus, starred review

"Tons of humor, whimsy, and action on every page. An irresistible introduction to the god and to Greek mythology in general." -School Library Journal, starred review

"Laughs come fast and frequently. . . It's every bit the wild and woolly "autobiography" that a chaotic spirit like Pan deserves."-Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Gerstein artfully re-creates not only the finger-in-a-light-socket energy of a spirited child but the way that young kids tell stories: abrupt, arbitrary, and rich with action." -The Horn Book, starred review
