"Sheldon's poetic text manages to overlay a homespun practicality with an ethereal, fairy-tale magic. . . . Blythe's paintings are extraordinary. . . . These vibrant panoramas of the sea and of the whales leaping from the moonlit water possess a rare luminosity and beauty that should not be missed." —Publishers Weekly

"In a spare, poetic narrative, Sheldon captures a child's wonder at these magnificent creatures, echoed, in a splendid debut, in Blythe's generously broad oil paintings. . . . Outstanding." —Kirkus Reviews
