AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In the warm tropical waters off the north Australian coast, a very special whale is born: Migaloo, the only all-white humpback whale in the world. As he and his pod make their annual migration to Antarctica, Migaloo discovers the beauty, wonder and danger of a whale's journey.

'Mark Wilson's exquisite illustrations capture the grace and intelligence of these extraordinary creatures, who enchant whale-watchers around the world. ' (Publication summary)
