Whales are among the biggest creatures that have ever lived on our planet. Some whales grow bigger than one hundred feet long and can weigh as much as fifty cars or more. They are huge, majestic creatures, yet we rarely even lay eyes on them. Now the acclaimed science writer Seymour Simon and the Smithsonian Institution team up to bring you a brand-new edition of his classic text on one of the world's truly amazing animals. This book is perfect for budding young scientists.
The original edition of whales was the first photo-essay book ever selected as a New York Times Best Illustrated Book!
