Join Whaley on his big adventure in the ocean as he meets Whales of all different sizes. Written and illustrated by 5 year old Alexander Luke, and presented by his grandmother, award-winning children's author Carole P. Roman, this oceanic adventure of whale-sized proportions will teach youngsters about the different whales that live in the oceans.
Any book that was written by a child is special. This story is a great example of the wonders of the child mind. I love it. My kids enjoyed each part of it.
The illustrations are adorable and I love what Carole has done to put it all together. This story is an easy evening read, and plays on the imagination and what the world under the waves might be like for a little whale and his big adventure.
I highly recommend it and not just because it was a little kid's story to begin with.
Alexander Luke was 5 when he wrote the story, and it was presented by his grandmother.
