What's Whale Child About

Publisher Summary

Whale Child tells the story of a little girl who is separated from her family and village after a natural disaster. Escaping the shoreline in a canoe, she is swept far out to sea but discovers that she is not alone. A gray whale is quietly guiding her to a secluded bay where many of her kind have gathered to welcome the new generation. Here, the gray whale gives birth to a daughter, and when the baby whale draws her first breath, she absorbs the spirit of the lost little girl. As one, the whale and the girl find their way back to the girl’s village, where the girl, now strengthened by the spirit of the whale, is reunited with her family.

Who Wrote Whale Child

author & illustrator
Caroll Simpson

Caroll Simpson writes and illustrates her books celebrating the legends and art of the Canadian Northwest Coast. She runs a fishing lodge with her husband, on Babine Lake in the northern interior of British Columbia. Her closest neighbours, 15 km away, are the Tatchet People. There are no roads to their lodge. The only access is 35 km by boat in the summer or snowshoes in the winter. When all the fishermen go home, and the winter cold turns the lake into thick ice with a deep blanket of snow covering her world, Caroll pours all her energy and time into what she loves best….The isolation of the Canadian wilderness and the exceptional art and history of The First People of North America.
