Praise for Explorers: Whales and Dolphins

“This book is filled with factoids about all kinds of these magnificent mammals. Every page is covered with several beautifully rendered realistic illustrations and photographs. There is also a method to follow some topics, such as environment or communication through the book with symbols leading to other pages with more topic information. . . .” —San Francisco Book Review
