Reviews

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.
