This story was based on a real whale rescue and told in lyrical language. The illustrations are beautiful - they capture the vivid colors and energy of the ocean and the powerful, but docile expressions of the humpback whale. Good information at the back of the book about whales, whale rescues, and the real facts behind the story.
There are several videos out there about whale rescues.
Read an article about the real story here.
