Big Blue Whale

Publisher: Walker Books

Review

Nicola Davies’ chatty picture book describes in detail the dimensions, eating habits and life-cycle of the blue whale. Additional interesting facts are included at the bottom of many pages.

The text is perfectly complemented by simple, lively, pen and ink drawings. The inclusion of two human figures illustrates the vast size of the whale and provides an additional talking point.
