Wild Orca: The Oldest, Wisest Whale in the World by Brenda Peterson, Wendell Minor

A picture book homage to Granny, the world’s oldest known orca, who lived to be 105 years old!

For animal lovers and future environmentalists.

“Will Granny and her family come again this year?” Dark fins slice through whitecaps, heading straight toward shore.

Told from the perspective of young Mia and her family on a whale-watching excursion in the San Juan Islands, here is a moving homage to Granny, the world’s oldest known orca. This intimate and informative story celebrates the importance of respecting and protecting wildlife. It also sheds light on communication and family connections in both human and orca communities, all while answering essential questions about how these intelligent animals live.
