Product Details


This poignant story reminds readers that despite human efforts, not all living beings can be saved and honestly portrays the frustration and sadness that can result. A thought-provoking choice.
—School Library Journal

It’s an achingly sad story about accepting the limits of one’s power, delivered with lyricism and poise. Ages 5–9.
—Publishers Weekly

A moving, memorable addition to the nature collection.
—Kirkus Reviews

Readers unfamiliar with life on the coast will find this tale compelling; those who have grown up near the ocean may empathize with the narrator’s anger at the injustice of the whale’s death. All will be moved by the powerful story.
—School Library Connection
