Staff Reviews


A great book for kids that are into science or a fun way to introduce natural science to all ages. We watch a beluga whale, later to be known as Charlotte, being caught 11,000 years ago in a tidal marsh slowly being preserved. In the year of 1849, she was found in a field in Vermont. First thought to be a horse’s skeleton, a sharped eye man who was walking saw these were not ordinary bones and started to study them. The afterwards are filled with facts of the beluga whale, the ice age and much more.

— Jeanette

Description


Many thousands of years ago, when a sheet of ice up to a mile thick began to let go of the land, the Atlantic Ocean flooded great valleys that had been scooped out by glaciers, and the salty waves of an inland sea lapped the green hills of Vermont. Into this arm of the sea swam Charlotte. Her milky, smooth, muscled body sliced slowly through the water like scissors through silk. Like a chirping canary, her voice echoed across dark waters showing the way to her pod as belugas have done for millions of years.
