Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With a new childrenandrsquo;s book imprint, the Bodleian Library brings beloved classics back into print, beginning with a beautiful storybook about the life of a fascinating species. Originally published in 1962, Whaleandrsquo;s Way by Johanna Johnston tells the surprising story of these creatures, complete with colorful artwork by award-winning illustrator Leonard Weisgard.

Whaleandrsquo;s Way introduces young readers to the humpback whale, one of the worldandrsquo;s largest creatures. With winter almost here, the gentle giants must swim, spouting and leaping, to the warmer waters near the equator. But, during the dangerous journey, the whales meet a band of hunters who wish them harm, and they must escape and guide the baby whales to safety. and#160;

Few things pique childrenandrsquo;s curiosity about the world around them better than a good book. Brought back for a new generation of young readers, Whaleandrsquo;s Way offers a fun and creative introduction to these fascinating animals.

Synopsis:

Triton, a graceful and powerful whale, is depicted swimming across 2,000 miles of water. Readers can join him in his travels as they follow his story in this full-color book.
