Whale Tales

Whale Tales
by Ron Hirschi
illustrated by Yuko Green

ISBN: 1-61710-280-6 

Whale Tales is a fictional non-fiction children's book, told as Lehua and Kai write letters to their whale-loving friends during their voyage on the research ship following the annual migration of humpback whales. The reader can learn about the great sea mammals and other sea creatures as they follow Lehua and Kai document the adventure of the humpbacks as they begin their trek from the feeding grounds of Alaska and cruise to the warm waters of Hawai'i to give birth to their calves.
This book is my 3rd collaborated work with Mr. Ron Hirschi: a biologist, ocean ecologist and teacher. Mr. Hirschi and I worked on another whale book Winter is for Whale about ten years ago.  Illustrating Whale Tales renewed my love for Hawaiian nature all over. 

This book will be translated to Japanese early this year! It is first time my book will be translated to another language, so I'm very excited! :)
32 pages, 9.5" x 10.25". $13.95 from Island Heritage.
