The young orca was excited to set out on his lone adventures across land and sea. But there were many dangers out there. Would he survive? Based on a true story, this book describes a killer whale's epic journey covering thousands of miles. It is an entertaining chapter book for early readers who love animals.
On a cool December morning near San Francisco, a distress call was radioed to shore by a local fisherman. He had discovered a humpback whale tangled in hundreds of yards of crab-trap lines, struggling to stay at the surface to breathe. A team of volunteers answered the call, and four divers risked their lives to rescue the enormous animal. What followed was a rare and remarkable demonstration of animal behavior. This celebrated story, beautifully depicted in Jennifer O'Connell's mesmerizing paintings, will make you wonder about animal emotions and the unique connections we can have with animals--even whales.
