A Small Blue Whale

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Lisa Mundorff. A lonely whale waits for a friend and ponders the nature of friendship: how might it look, feel, taste, and sound? Is the passing cloud his friend? When a group of penguins rescue him from danger, he finally experiences real friendship. Illustrations with silkscreen-like textures and vibrant colors, especially blues and greens, draw readers into a kid-appropriate philosophical story that may well inspire discussion.
