More About Nicola Davies & Nick Maland
Nicola Davies says, "Now there is so much man-made noise in the ocean that the blue whales are having trouble hearing one another. Unlike humpbacks, their booming hums are infrequent, so it is always exciting when we locate one."
Nick Maland says, "I have illustrated for newspapers and magazines over the years, but it was not until my daughter was born that I turned to children's books!"
Nicola Davies currently resides in Somerset. Nicola Davies was born in 1958.
Reviews - What do customers think about Big Blue Whale: Read and Wonder (Read and Wonder)?
Perfect science and read-aloud book. Sep 29, 2001
A wonderfully succinct overview of the blue whale and it's habits.
The clear, sweet prose makes delivery of the content easy, and the very fine, soft illustrations demand repeated veiwing. My Preschool and Kindergarten ESL students found it highly engaging.
If there's a better science and read-aloud book around I'd really like to know about it. TEN stars.
Follow this book up with the superb "Is a Blue Whale the Biggest Thing There Is?" by Robert E. Wells. Wells' book uses the whales' size as a starting point for exploring the size of the universe and other very big things (the second step involves putting a hundred blue whales in a really big jar). Read my review of Wells' book if you like.
ONE OF THE BEST WHALE BOOKS AVAILABLE! Mar 17, 1998
I'm a whale researcher who has spent much of the last 12 years studying blue whales in the North Pacific. I'm also a mom who loves children's literature. Rarely do I see a book that is so accurate factually while it is captivating and magical! The illustrations are beautiful. I highly recommend it to anyone who has children who are facinated by whales.
