This along with the works of Rachel Carson are the poetry of marine biology
This is the story of a sperm whale calf and his life with his whale family. Throughout the book the author covers details based on actual events. It is fiction based on fact. You get to learn about the birth, mating, feeding, and other habits of sperm whales. The book may be hard for youngsters to understands, as it can be somewhat scientific. I'd recommend it for ages 12 and up. It is a very good book if you like accuracy. I liked it alot.
