★ "Brunelle's engaging voice strikes the right balance between narration and exposition. . ."--The Horn Book, Starred Review

★ "Brunelle's prose is both lucid and poetic, while Caldecott-winning illustrator Chin depicts all of these changes in precise but lyrical ways. . . Grand and engrossing. "--Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

★ "Brunelle's work, accompanied by the astonishingly realistic watercolor and gouache artwork of Caldecott Medalist Jason Chin (Watercress), is an exquisite ode to the largest documented animal on Earth."--Shelf Awareness, Starred Review

★ "[An] amazing picture book. . . The content seamlessly integrates technical vocabulary, marine biology, and chemistry; Chin's meticulous watercolor illustrations carefully align and support the text, and rich back matter will appeal to researchers."--Booklist, Starred Review

★ "...the work meticulously and sensitively portrays the countless sea creatures sustained by a single carcass over more than a century. It's a thoughtful breakdown of death supporting life and a brilliant exposition of the way that populations grow and are sustained."--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

★ "Honest, informed, and enthusiastic, this does exactly what the best science books do--leave kids curious about what else is out there is to discover."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, Starred Review

"There's poetry to Brunelle's conveyance of facts. . . [A] moving exploration of death and life deep below the surface of the water and the interconnection of multiple layers of existence."--The Boston Globe
