Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If you want to see a whale, you will need to know what not to look at.

Pink roses, pelicans, possible pirates . . .

If you want to see a whale, you have to keep your eyes on the sea, and wait . . .

and wait . . . and wait . . .

In this quiet and beautiful picture book by Julie Fogliano and Erin E. Stead, the team that created the Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor book And Then It's Spring, a boy learns exactly what it takes to catch a glimpse of an elusive whale.

A Neal Porter Book

Review:

"A gorgeous love song to the imagination....It's breathtaking....Fans will be waiting." Booklist, starred review

Review:

"Readers will gape at the two enormous, whale-sized talents at work in this transfixing picture book." Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Review:

"Stead's pencil and linoleum prints — as delicate, understated, and imaginative as ever — take exciting creative license with Fogliano's expressive writing." Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

Review:

"The same pair that brought us And Then Its Spring (rev. 1/12) returns with a book that has a similar overall feel but a completely different story...this one takes on the possibility of imagination." The Horn Book

About the Author

Julie Fogliano has spent her entire life reading children's books. Now she stays up way too late writing her own books while eating cereal. She lives in the Hudson Valley with her husband and their three children. They make her very tired, but give her lots of good ideas. This is her second book. Her first was the New York Times bestseller And Then It's Spring, which received five starred reviews.

Erin E. Stead first met Julie Fogliano while working together in a New York City bookstore. Today she lives in a 100-year-old barn in Ann Arbor, Michigan, with her husband, Philip, who is an author and illustrator, and with whom she created A Sick Day for Amos McGee, winner of the 2011 Caldecott Medal, as well as Bear has a Story to Tell. She also illustrated Julie Fogliano's And Then It's Spring. Erin created the illustrations for this book using woodblock printing techniques and pencil.
