Judy Allen's book "Awaiting Developments" won the Friends of the Earth Earthworm Award and the Whitbread Children's Novel Award and was commended for the Carnegie Medal. Among her other books are "Auntie Billie's Greatest Invention" and "Anthology for the Earth".

In this story about the dangers facing whales, Anya and her parents are returning home from a nearby island, when the boat radio tells of a terrible oil slick.

Soon afterwards Anya sees a humpback whale and her calf in such distress that it seems that only a miracle can save them.
