From award-winning author and illustrator Mark Wilson, a stunning celebration of the beauty and majesty of whales.
In the warm tropical waters off the north Australian coast, a very special whale is born: Migaloo, the only all-white humpback whale in the world. As he and his pod make their annual migration to Antarctica, Migaloo discovers the beauty, wonder and danger of a whale's journey.
Mark Wilson's exquisite illustrations capture the grace and intelligence of these extraordinary creatures, who enchant whale-watchers around the world.
Wilson's ability to effectively use a range of styles and media, as well as his expressionistic use of colour, body language and framing, ensures his storytelling is thought-provoking and evocative. (On THE AFGHANISTAN PUP) - Canberra Times
