About the Author

Nicola Davies says, "Now there is so much man-made noise in the ocean that the blue whales are having trouble hearing one another. Unlike humpbacks, their booming hums are infrequent, so it is always exciting when we locate one." Nick Maland says, "I have illustrated for newspapers and magazines over the years, but it was not until my daughter was born that I turned to children's books!"
