The story of Three Whales : a true adventure

From School Library Journal

In 1988, the three gray whales who waited too long to begin their southern migration and were trapped in the Arctic ice captured world – wide attention. This is that story, told simply, in a picture-book format with black-and-white line drawings. Benson uses varying viewpoints: aerial drawings of people watching, working, and waiting; and underwater drawings of the whales gathered around their small breathing hole. The vast and unforgiving Arctic is an unspoken character in this moving story of an unusual rescue.
