Book About Whales
Acting as a first book of whales, A Book About Whales teaches young readers everything they need to know about the largest mammals on earth: how they have evolved over millions of years, what and how they eat, their migration patterns, and more! Andrea Antinori’s whimsical black-and-white illustrations bring their underwater world to life. The book discusses a variety of whales one by one so readers learn to tell the differences between a blue whale and a humpback whale, among others, and what makes each of these whales unique. Packed with facts and playful in tone, this book is a must-have for young and curious nature lovers. It includes a bibliography and index.
Andrea Antinori is the author and illustrator of a number of Italian children’s books. He was awarded the Anderson Award in 2017 for his illustrations in La Zuppa Dell-orco and was on the IBBY Honor List in 2016. He lives in Italy.
