Written and Illustrated by Caroll Simpson
When a big volcano erupts near her village, a young girl is swept out to sea in a canoe. Lost and afraid, she is rescued by Mother Whale, who guides her to the safety of a warm, quiet bay. After Mother Whale gives birth, the baby whale and the little girl form a magical connection. Moving as one, the whale and girl – now called Whale Child – give each other strength and spirit. And together they must find a way back to the girl’s village.
