Description
Elegantly illustrated with crosshatched ink and color drawings, this is Nicola Davies's fascinating introduction to the largest animal ever known to inhabit the earth, for animal lovers 5 to 9. Davies, a British zoologist and television presenter as well as the author of A First Book of Nature, Ice Bear, Extreme Animals, and Poo, describes the blue whale in sensual terms—the feel of its skin, the texture of its baleen, the fishy smell of its breath. Davies also provides details about their feeding habits, migrations, and their young, as well as their life in the oceans, swimming alone yet humming to other whales thousands of kilometers away.

"Nicola Davies is an author who gets the balance exactly right. Her scientific love of the particular translates into the precise, well-chosen language that so appeals to children."—Times Educational Supplement (London)
