    Based upon a tale related to her as a girl by her father, this early picture-book from the prolific Patricia Polacco - published in 1989, I believe it is the sixth of her fifty-five titles to see print - follows the story of young Will (Polacco's father) and his sister Mabel, and their adventures with an old Indian woman, Lillian Two Blossom. Fishing (or attempting to fish) down by Kalaska Pond, Will must contend with Mabel's constant questions - "Why does the sun cross the sky?" "Who brings the night?" - questions for which he has no answers. Enter Lillian Two Blossom, an elderly Indian woman said to live in the woods near their Michigan home, who takes them on a magical boat-ride through the sky - a boat ride that gives them the answers to Mabel's many questions...

    Although I understand that Boat Ride With Lillian Two Blossom is based upon a tall tale related by Polacco's father, which is in turn based on real-life experiences from his childhood (presumably sans aerial voyage), I can't say that I found it that convincing. It wasn't simply that I found it difficult to suspend my disbelief, and enter into the magic of the story (although there is that), but also that I found the plot device of the "magical/mystical Indian guide" - a regrettable theme that pops up, from time to time, in American literature of all kinds - somewhat hackneyed and stereotypical. All in all, not a favorite of mine, when it comes to Polacco's work.

    Well, I loved the illustrations, especially of the wolves and the polar bear and some of the other animals, and the frothy water when the boat lands.

    Even though Polacco mentions at the beginning of the book, her Michigan roots, and the Indian (Native American) names of places so prevalent in that state, the story did little for me. I’ve heard such myths told much better.

    I love Polacco’s books and appreciate the way she uses family history. Here, she tells a story (tall tale in this case) about her father and his sister when they were children. This is one of her very early books.

    The story is a 2 or 1 star story for me, but I can’t give the book 1 or even 2 stars because of the fine art work.

    This book was really unique and fun to read. The sister asked her brother all sorts of questions on the sun, rain, wind, and moon and he didn't answer any of them but then Lillian Two Blossom appears and gets on their boat and takes them on a journey and explains all the answers to the sisters questions, almost in a legend/ cultural way. When they get back to land the lady disappears and the sister is left confused. I thought it was interesting how the lady just left when she got back to land and how she became young when they went on the journey but became old again when they got back. almost like it was a connection to when Lillian Two Blossom was a little girl and had the same questions and that is what she got told.

    "I Dunno" is William's answer to his little sister, Mabel's incessant questions. "Where Does the Wind Come From, Why does the Moon Look Cold?, Who Brings the Night?" and on and on. Old weather-worn, Lillian, says she knows the answers to all those questions and more and she takes them on a magical, mythical boat ride for the answers.

    Did the boat ride really happen? It's a good question. Like all the other good questions in this book. I loved the folklore shared with the children to give all the answers that Mabel asks. The mix of fantasy and reality (knowing that so many of these stories are based entirely on the author's life) makes them really fun to read - a glimpse into the not so distant past in Michigan.

    I loved how Polacco tied her family roots into the Folklore of this story. It leaves a lot open for interpretation and lets your imagination run! The illustrations are beautiful and make you feel like you are on the journey with Mabel and William!

    This so reminds me of Pocahontas with the river. I love that Native American folktales have spirit animals and explanations for everything that science couldn't find answers to fast enough. They are so inventive. And children always ask the best questions.

    Didn't like these young children going off with a stranger.
