Review: Whaley's Big Adventure, Illustrated by Alexander Luke and Presented by, Carole P. Roman
Whaley's Big Adventure tells the very large tale of Whaley the blue whale who sets off in the ocean to find some other whales that live in the ocean too.
Along the way Whaley meets different sized whales who have some fun names like, Owen the orca and Brody the beluga whale. With each page turn the reader discovers what part of the vast oceans each whale lives in and a particular trait or two.
In the end, Whaley returns home full of knowledge and new friends in the ocean.
I have been privileged to receive an advance pre-publication copy of this book from the author. I was not sure what to expect because I knew ahead of time the author's grandson had helped write this book. What I actually found was a well thought out book with adorable illustrations by 5 year old Alexander.
The illustrations are simple, colorful and cute as only a 5 year old would do. I loved the storyline and the fact that children and adults could learn a thing or two about the different types of whales that live in the ocean. I know I did!
I do recommend this for ages 3 up to probably about 7 years of age. If you are an animal lover, then this is one for you.
Congratulations Alexander, you now have your first 5 stars from me.
