Praise For The Great Whale of Kansas…
"A quirky wonder about truth, perseverance, and the vagaries of fame. In Melville, Kansas, located at the geographic center of the country, an unnamed 11-year-old-boy discovers a fossil unlike any ever excavated before. . . .Jennings draws a delightful portrait of this remarkably determined and self-contained child." Kirkus Reviews with Pointers
"Odd yet engaging. . .it’s hard not to be impressed by the ambitious plot and the quality of Jennings’ writing." Booklist, ALA, Boxed Review
