Symphony of Whalesby Steve Schuch
Glashka is the only one in her village who can hear the voice of Narna, the whale. That gift leads her to great responsibility one day, when she discovers thousands of whales trapped in an inlet. The narrow route to the sea is rapidly icing over, and every day ice covers more of the open water the whales need to breathe. There seems to be no way out...This story, based on an actual event, tells of a dramatic rescuea tale of bravery and faith and the power of music.
