Designed to amuse and intrigue, I Wonder Why Whales Sing and Other Questions About Sea Life answers all sorts of questions that children ask about life in the seas and oceans, from the brightly colored fish of the coral reefs to the oddly shaped creatures of the ocean trenches. It introduces the remarkable forms of communication used by whales and dolphins, the amazing migration of the gray whale, and some of the thousands of shellfish, birds, mammals, and insects that live on seashores around the world. Illustrated with stunning, high-quality artwork, a wealth of information is backed up with fun facts and lively cartoons.
