Publisher's Description

With a wide variety of whale species covered, you can learn about all kinds of whales, from the minke to the bottlenosed or beluga whales to name but a few. Packed with interesting information: did you know that a blue whale's tongue weighs as much as a baby elephant? Or that a human hand is very similar to a whales fin? Read about one sperm whale's mighty battle with a giant squid and the humpback whales' plight against the humans that want to hunt them.

For real whale enthusiasts this book also suggests websites and places to visit to find out even more!

Other titles in this series: Big Cats, Sharks, Elephants, Bees, Dinosaurs, Wolves, Snakes, Rats, Frogs and Toads, Spiders, Crocodiles, Dogs and Horses.

Editorial Reviews


"The minute I opened [Wild Reads], my kids, aged 8 and 5, devoured them They are filled with colorful, very detailed drawings to interest the non-readers, and have large print for young readers. The books don't talk down to the kids, however. There are plenty of big words to learn, but each book comes with a handy glossary in the back These books help make nonfiction more accessible to children and show that nonfiction can be just as fun and interesting as fiction." --Wired Magazine, GeekDad


"Children will go 'wild' with interest in this Oxford series of very readable and exciting books about wildlife. Wonderfully illustrated with cheerfully engaging colorful drawings of the topic animals, the narratives will pique the interest of the reader These are wonderfully crafted books that will intrigue children from three to eight along with their accompanying adults." --San Francisco Book Review
