1st ed.
Lilly's grandmother tells her of a time when the oceans were filled with whales and how they now face extinction because of the shortsightedness and greed of humans. Rather than offering simple solutions to a complex problem, the author creates a mysterious encounter with the magnificent mammals through poetic text. Text copyright 2004 Lectorum Publications, Inc.
