Off the Pacific coast of Mexico, a whale is born. Swimming beside Mama Whale, and surrounded by a protective pod, Baby Whale begins to grow and learn.

She dives in the deep dark through swirling galaxies of luminous fish.

She encounters dangerous orcas and a giant squid. Soon Baby can leap and blow, and comes to know all the ways of the whales and the sea. Continuing the nature series that includes "The Eyes of Gray Wolf, Condor's Egg" and "Honeypaw and Lightfoot", Jonathan London's simple, poetic prose captures the tenderness and drama in the life of the endangered sperm whale.

Jon Van Zyle's dynamic illustrations reveal the grace and magnificence of these mighty mammals.

An informative afterword and a reader's guide are included.
