Synopsis

The Whale Who Saved Us by Nicola Davies

An illustrated arctic adventure with bowhead whales, based on a real conservation project, from award-winning author Nicola Davies.The fifth title in Nicola Davies' Heroes of the Wild series is an arctic adventure based on a real conservation project to protect bowhead whales. Young and troubled Suki is sent to stay with relatives in Whale Bay after Suki's older brother Levi tries to commit suicide. Expecting to be bored and miserable, Suki is surprised by how much she thrives in the natural world: ice fishing, dog-sledding and even witnessing a whale hunt. But Levi's life remains in danger and unless Suki can find a reason for him to live she will never be able to help him. Could the bowhead whales of Whale Bay hold the answer? With beautiful illustrations by Annabel Wright, and information about the conservation project the story is based on, this chapter book for young readers will delight all those who love wildlife and care about conservation.
