Synopsis

Whale's Way by Johanna Johnston

'That is the way of the largest creature on earth. That is the whale's way.' The humpback whales journey through polar seas, diving, spouting and leaping. As winter comes they swim through treacherous waters towards the warmer climate of the equator. Will they escape the hunters and guide baby whale to safety? Telling the story of the life cycle of the whale in a simple narrative, this is a beautifully illustrated book with timeless appeal.
