Whale Snow based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Beautifully written and illustrated, Whale Snow can be appreciated by young and old alike. Edwardson captures the essence and importance of community, a concept sorely lacking in the lower forty-eight today. What I wouldn't give for a little whale happiness in the big city.
