From the most celebrated children s nature writer of our time comes a posthumous new novel in the tradition of her Newbery award-winning Julie of the Wolves
In 1848, a young boy witnesses a rare sight the birth of a bowhead, or ice whale, he calls Siku. Years later, he unwittingly brings about the death of an entire pod of whales, and only Siku survives. For this act, the boy receives a curse of banishment. Through the generations, this curse is handed down: Siku returns year after year, in reality and dreams, to haunt the boy s descendants. Told in alternating voices, both human and whale, Jean Craighead George s last novel shows the interconnectedness of humankind and the animals they depend on.
It s a bold, wistful, and heartfelt coda to a distinguished career. School Library Journal"
