The Whales' Song

Average rating
4.1 out of 5
Based on 68 Ratings and 22 Reviews

Book Description
Lilly listens as her grandmother tells of the whales she loved as a child--how she'd wait by the sea with a special gift, until finally they came, with a gift of their own. The whales fill Lilly's dreams. She believes they will come to her, if only she can show them how to find her. The poetic text is illuminated by breathtaking oil paintings.
