I love Carl Safina's wonderful books, so I was really excited to get this children's book which is so gorgeously illustrated. The story is fantastic, about a real whale rescue. Nina Delmar is a great heroine and makes the story really fun. The kids love it, and we always want to run to the beach and look for whales to save after we read it!
