Item Description...

Based on an actual event, this moving story tells how a young Chukchi girl named Pipaluk saves the lives of thousands of beluga whales trappped in a channel with ice closing in around them in the Russian Arctic. When Pipa and her father discover the whales, their entire village comes together in a valiant effort to rescue the creatures. Finally, an ice-breaker arrives, cutting an opening to the sea for the whales. But the engine noise frightens the creatures, and it takes a clever plan of Pipa's to lure the whales to open water. At the end of the book, an author's note describes the real-life event that inspired this beautiful story.

A wonderful true story about a community that worked together to save the whales trapped in the sea ice.
Pipaluk and the Whales  Mar 5, 2006
This is a wonderful book based on a true story. My son, who is 5 years old, loves this story and asks me to read it again and again. Illustrations are superb too.
A touching, beautiful picturebook based on a true story.  Mar 28, 2002
Written and illustrated by John Himmelman, Pipaluk And The Whales is a touching picturebook based on a true story. A young girl on the Chukchi Peninsula (a part of Russia just across the sea from Alaska) named Pipaluk finds thousands of whales trapped in a narrow opening in the ice. The whales have provided her village with food for centuries, and now it's their turn to help the whales. But all efforts to free the whales are in vain - until Pipaluk has an idea. Pipaluk And The Whales is a truly wonderful story for young readers and is filled with gentle, wintry illustrations.
