Jessica Lanan’s dreamy and dramatic watercolor paintings bring to life a wordless story about wonder in the natural world. A fisherman takes his son for a trip out on the water. When they encounter a whale entangled at sea, they realize a connection that transcends the animal kingdom.
The illustrations in this wordless picture book are absolutely phenomenal! You’ll love this wordless story about a boy and his father out fishing for the day who come across a whale in need of some help. Even when it’s inconvenient for them, the father jumps out and helps the whale, who gives the man and boy and nice thank you when he’s free. :)
