In this quiet and beautiful picture book by Julie Fogliano and Erin E. Stead, the team that created the Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor book And Then It's Spring, a boy learns exactly what it takes to catch a glimpse of an elusive whale. It seems like a simple story of a boy who wants to see a whale, but really it's about learning to see the impossible. You'll need patience, imagination and a sharp eye. We're inspired to think this new children's picture book will one day be a classic.
