About this title


Describes the extraordinary journey of a young humpback whale who, during the annual migration from Alaska to Mexico, leaves his pod and swims into San Francisco Bay and, after some harrowing adventures, winds up in the Sacramento River Delta

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5 Up-- In a busy writing style, the story of the humpback whale who took a detour from his migrating pod into the San Franciso Bay in the fall of 1985 is told. The whale's thoughts, motives, and even his feelings are gushingly described as he swims under six bridges and ends up trapped in the shallow, dead-end Shag Slough. Although scientific terms are introduced and used, they are not defined until the summarizing glossary, and the anthropomorphizing detracts from the factual information. The illustrations are watercolors, some quite lovely representations of the whale, while others are rather static. Humphrey the Wrong-Way Whale (Dillon, 1987) by Kathryn A. Goldner and Carole G. Vogel provides factual information on humpback whales, on how Humphrey got his name, and the rescue possibilities considered. It is a better choice for this age group. --Frances E. Millhouser, Reston Regional Library, VA
