The Lovereading4Kids comment

Part of a fun and informative series (see also Could a Shark Do Gymnastics?) this book imagines a whale in some pretty bizarre situations: trying karaoke for example, and flying through the air strapped underneath an aeroplane! It’s a fun and clever way of demonstrating the whale’s size and other characteristics. As for the question, ‘Could a whale swim to the Moon?’ – the answer is yes: a blue whale will swim about one million kilometres during its lifetime, further than going to the Moon, and back. The pictures are bright and appealing, and the absurdity of the questions is bound to appeal to 6 – 8 year olds. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Could a Whale Swim to the Moon? by Camilla de la Bedoyere

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if a blue whale was your friend? What If A Blue Whale Could Swim To The Moon? provides a fun introduction into the life of a blue whale. By imagining animals in everyday scenarios readers can learn about their size, diet and other features. Engaging question and answer format will keep young readers entertained and help them to understand and retain animal facts. For example, what would a whale do on Valentine's Day? She would make an enormous valentine card because she has the biggest heart in the animal world! Featuring superb illustrations with an engaging question and answer format, this series will keep young readers entertained and help them to understand and retain animal facts.

Following on from the popular What if a Dino series, QED is publishing four new titles on ocean animals:

Could a Penguin Ride a Bike?

Could an Octopus Climb a Skyscraper?

Could a Shark do Gymnastics?

Could a Whale Swim to the Moon?

Reviews

'The question and answer format will keep young readers entertained and help them to understand and retain animal facts. Amusing illustrations are perfectly matched to the pictures - so we see the whale in a swimming cap and blowing up 250 balloons with one breath! It's great fun but it's also factual; there's a map to show where the blue whale lives too'
