Bantam Books ;
Pub. Date:
The award-winning Simon James makes a big splash with this wistful, informative tale of a boy who befriends an endangered blue whale. Wouldn't it be amazing to have a blue whale for a friend, and go swimming together every night? And how sad would it be if that friendship ended because the whale disappeared? Using a fanciful premise and expressive ink-and-watercolor illustrations, Simon James gently helps children grasp the reality of the blue whale's endangered plight, while offering many intriguing facts about these magnificent creatures.
