The Lovereading4Kids comment

Whale’s playground is the icy seas and he is fearless as he ducks and dives among the waves. But, when Whale gets stuck on an iceberg, the sea seems a less happy place. How will whale get off? His friends heave and ho to try to get him back in the water but Whale is too heavy. Maybe he’ll be stuck there forever. Luckily, Whale gets the help he needs in the nick of time.

From the same illustrator that brought you Gilbert the Great.
