If you want to see a whale….. you need certain things like a window and an ocean. You also need to know what not to look at…. like pink roses and pelicans. And you need patience. Imagination is floated on poetic language in this quiet story. Beautiful illustrations in sea greens and blues are a delight. Up to Seven. Ruth Anne Champion
Readers plunge the ocean’s surface to reach the darkness of nearly 36,000 feet and meet 50 sea creatures along the way. Cut-paper collages and surprising information offer a fascinating glimpse of this little-known part of the natural world.
A fortune teller, a hot air balloon loaded with Bibles, a blackmailing neighbor, a handful of possible fathers, and a few brushes with death swirl through 12-year-old Jane's seaside summer in this luminous, laughter-filled novel.
