Chasing the Wind Whales by Daniel Nicholson
Boularderie Island Press
Chasing the Wind Whales follows the adventures of Lark, a young girl from a small fishing village. The loss of a friend sets her off on a quest to find and fly with the elusive wind whales. These giant gentle creatures glide through the air and hide within the clouds to avoid becoming entangled with the garbage that rises into the skies from the world below. Her encounters with the wind whales give her a new sense of purpose: to do her part in protecting all creatures from environmental hazards. Chasing the Wind Whales is a chapter book appropriate for elementary school students and contains many activity pages that encourage children to personalize the book by adding their own pictures between the covers!
