From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6-- Whales in their natural habitat, the sea and the sky, are lavishly illustrated in this introduction to their physical characteristics and biology. The full-color photographs are lush, the text is succinct, and the oversized format sets off the large scale of these huge, magnificent creatures. Unusual close-ups show body angles not often seen. One particularly effective shot shows a humpback mother and her baby with their long flippers gleaming white through the dark blue water. Humpbacks often feed together, and their bodies, photographed glistening with water, look like huge black rocks. Representational species of the 90 kinds of whales in the world are described in a flowing text perfectly accented by the photographs. A beautiful and factual addition for all collections. --Frances E. Millhouser, Reston Regional Library, VA
