Review:
The whale speaks only to Glashka. This is both a gift and a responsibility. When Glashka discovers thousands of whales trapped in an inlet, she finds strength from her gift and derives courage from her responsibility, bringing her people together to rescue the whales. Illustrations by Peter Sylvada are subtly yet richly textured. Conveying movement, concern, urgency, fear, solitude and warmth, Schuch’s story is stronger for them. The historical notes provide an added element to the well-told story.
