Trade Paperback

Based on the true story of the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill off the coast of Alaska, Gloria Rand's children's picture book Prince William is a tale of compassion and environmentalism--beautifully illustrated by Ted Rand.

In Prince William Sound, Alaska, a tanker crashes on a reef and spills millions of gallons of oil into the waters.

On a beach nearby, a little girl named Denny finds a baby seal covered with oil. It is barely alive. How can she save its life?
