If You Want to See a Whale

Julie Fogliano

A little boy and his basset hound patiently wait to see a whale as they sit at the window overlooking a vast ocean. As he waits the boy tells of the distractions he must avoid: birds, roses, pirate ships, clouds, and pelicans. His imaginative journey is told in simple poetic verse, complemented by Erin Stead's luminous illustrations. Another gem from the team that created And Then It's Spring (2012)
