Description

Dylan lives on a remote island in the Pacific Northwest with his parents, but when they have to go to the mainland, his grandfather weathers a storm to come spend time with him. Grandpa’s brought Dylan a number of gifts, and one comes in handy the next day while they are exploring the coast. In fact, this gift leads the duo to a dangerous discovery: a young orca got stuck on the rocks during the storm. Racing against the sun and the heat, Dylan and Grandpa need to work together to figure out how to save the calf while his pod circles nearby.

Editorial Reviews

? “Walters has woven a touching story about the connection humans have with other living beings on Earth. Recommended for wide purchase.”

— School Library Journal, starred review

“A delightful early chapter book... Carefully yet simply crafted with just the right amount of detail, this tale will engage early nature and adventure readers who are yearning for chapter books.”

— School Library Connection

“The story highlights grandparents (and other adults) as support systems, sounding boards, and sources of advice, but sets the stage for children as heroes of their own tales. Children can experience vicarious empowerment and hopefully translate that fearlessness and determination into their own lives. Highly Recommended.”

— CM: Canadian Review of Materials

“Scientific information is seamlessly woven in. Accessible for transitioning readers and graced with the occasional grayscale illustration, the book offers fast-paced action and tension surrounding the whale's fate—both will keep readers invested.”

— Kirkus Reviews
