Whale will you look at what we have here!

Yes, a whole book that you could also describe as a 'whale' of a good time. 

Why, Yes, our pun game is very strong here at TT.  Thank you for noticing. (Make sure you check out our gift card collection. Pun central)

The illustrations are beautiful and the information is on point. If you're looking for a book about big sea mammals, this is the book for you. 

(Yes, it's a Mammal! Not a fish. Amazing!)

-------------------

The whale in literature: the animal that swallowed Jonah in the Holy Bible and Melville’s whale symbolising the invincibility of nature over human fragility. But leaving aside predetermined roles, literary stereotypes and symbolic meanings, what do we really know about whales? What do they eat? In which seas do they live? And how many different kinds of whales are there?

A book for finding out everything about this mythical animal that has always been the subject of legends and is, in fact, one of the most prominent figures in the history of world literature. Following his first publication entitled Is this a moose?, Andrea Antinori has now written a book about whales, complete with monochromatic pictures and striking pencil illustrations to talk about whales from an “alternative” and more scientific viewpoint. To get both the young and old more interested in this giant of the sea, debunk certain myths associated with it, and study its lifestyle and behaviour, like genuine naturalists getting right down to the bare facts.
