"My father and I live for the sea. He is the captain of the Cuffee Whale Boat and today I am his First Mate."
Whale-watching is a hugely popular pastime: at least 13 million people take whale-watching trips each year. But in the past, whaling ships hunted these animals to use their blubber for fuel and their bones for fishing hooks. As the whale population thinned, fortunately hunting ceased. Now, whale lovers go out on boats just to get a glimpse of these giant endangered creatures.
Narrated by a little girl out on the waves with her father, this is a story of marine history and the differences between then and now.
