A picture book homage to Granny, the world’s oldest orca, by environmentalist author Brenda Peterson, with stunning art by the bestselling illustrator Wendell Minor.


On the longest day of summer light,
Mia waits for Granny to join them for Orca Sing.

In spare, beautiful words and evocative illustrations, environmental activist Brenda Peterson and award-winning illustrator Wendell Minor pay tribute to Granny, the world’s oldest-known orca whale who lived to be one hundred and five.


Told from the perspective of young Mia and her family on a whale-watching excursion in the San Juan Islands, this intimate and informative story celebrates the importance of nature, tradition, communication, and family in both human and orca communities, all while answering essential questions about how these intelligent animals live.


For animal enthusiasts and future environmentalists.
