A beautiful first guide to humpback whales, part of an exciting new series of animal books.

Head to the depths of the ocean to study humpback whales in this nonfiction field guide for kids.

You may know that humpback whales use whale song to communicate with each other, but there’s so much more to discover about these giants of the sea! In this book, acclaimed marine biologist Dr. Asha de Vos explains how humpbacks use special bubble nets to catch fish, and what makes them sometimes launch themselves high out of the water. Filled with simple science and plenty of animal facts, this book also explains how hunting made humpback whales an endangered species—and how conservation efforts have seen their numbers increase again.

Featuring stunning illustrations by Jialei Sun, Humpback Whale (Young Zoologist) is part of a new series from Neon Squid aiming to inspire the next generation of biologists.
