Children's Literature - Suzanna E. HenshonHave you ever been interested in killer whales? In this live-action comic strip story, Shamu welcomes you to join him in a study about marine biology and orcas in particular. The orca is one of the largest and most powerful predators in the world. Orcas are known as "killer whales" because they can kill larger mammals. They weigh 1.5-2.0 tons and can swim up to 30 miles an hour. Orcas can dive up to 900 feet deep and they live in all the oceans of the world. Orcas can eat anything from small fish to seals to whales. They can swim up to 100 miles a day in search of food. Until recently, scientists knew very little about orcas. But a male orca was caught and taken to the Seattle Aquarium, where Namu started his training and learned to perform for crowds. Shamu joined Namu a few years later. In this fun and informative story, young readers will learn more about the most fascinating creature of the seathe orca. Reviewer: Suzanna E. Henshon, Ph.D.
