Review: This dramatic nature tale is told in two voices: the whale and the boy. Through the decades after Toozak witnesses the birth of a whale with a distinctive birthmark, generations have pledged to protect the great whale Siku. With sightings confirmed, the promise is kept and scientists discover amazing factual information by joining in the sightings. The story begins in 1848, and continues into the future, 2048. Changes in climate, laws, and how all things interact with one another are noted in this fabulous book.
