"Harvey, the Great Lakes Whale" genuinely is a whale of a tale.
The back again cover claims it is "academic and exciting for children of all ages" and it fulfills that promise

The story starts when the younger whale, Harvey, fairly than listening to his mother and keeping
absent from the ships in the North Atlantic Ocean, decides to consider
and race just one. Harvey ends up receiving his fluke-his tail fin-this is an instructional e-book so we
discover about fish fins between other interesting info-caught in the rudder of a ship.
The ship is as well rapidly and negative weather conditions will
make the drinking water way too tough for Harvey's
loved ones to rescue him. Harvey before long finds himself remaining pulled
by the ship as a result of the St. Lawrence Seaway, then Lake Ontario,
Lake Erie, Lake Huron, and eventually Lake Outstanding.
He passes by the numerous locks alongside the Wonderful Lakes, and he meets lots of fish who consider to support
him without the need of results only when he reaches Lake
Superior is he equipped to cost-free himself, and then Harvey simply cannot get back
by means of the Soo Locks to his spouse and children.

But Harvey's adventures have only just begun. He quickly
fulfills a lot of attention-grabbing characters in the Excellent Lakes-not only fish, but also Clyde the clam,
and my favorite, Gertrude the gossiping seagull.
Currently being young and playful, and not really getting uncovered his lesson from getting
his fluke caught in a rudder, Harvey enjoys shocking people
who simply cannot consider their eyes when they see a whale in Lake Exceptional.
Harvey amazes the visitors on the glass base shipwreck excursions in Munising Bay, and he
even frightens an ice fisherman. Though he gets in difficulty
with the fish council for upsetting the individuals, Harvey at some point comes to truly feel at residence in Lake

Amid telling all of Harvey's adventures, writer William Nelson has inserted several specifics about the history of the Great Lakes.

Each individual time Harvey fulfills a new form of fish, a web site is inserted describing
the type of fish, such as its Latin identify, how a lot
it weighs, its shade, and some exciting facts-did you know carp essentially arrived to North The usa from China, or that sturgeon can live for seventy-5 many years?
These limited descriptions of several fish will be academic to children and serve as an early guidebook
to long run fisherman. Harvey also learns a lot about
shipwrecks on the Good Lakes, which include the sinking of the "Edmund Fitzgerald," which he visits
in its watery grave. The illustrations, by Emily Mauchmar, are not only charming shots of Harvey and his buddies, but they are also correct portrayals of distinct kinds of fish, ranging from pike and trout to sturgeon and salmon, such as whiskers and quantity
of fins.

"Harvey the Fantastic Lakes Whale" is a good ebook for all ages,
possibly to be examine aloud to young youngsters, or for
children ages 8 or more mature to browse by themselves.

Grownups will discover it just as pleasing, even though they also
learn a little bit about the Good Lakes. I, for one particular,
experienced no strategy there had been 10 locks a ship would have to
pass by means of to get into Lake Outstanding from
the Atlantic Ocean. Soon after reading through the reserve, youngsters will be more interested in the Great Lakes, and likely insist they go
on a boat tour to try out and location Harvey.

The "About the Writer" segment at the end of the e-book states that William
Nelson utilized to work for the correctional department and generally
drove prisoners from Munising to Harvey. On 1 this sort of journey,
a prisoner asked him what was that item out in the lake.
From that minute, the tale of Harvey was born.
Did William Nelson make up the tale, or is Harvey the Whale
truly in Lake Exceptional? I will not know the respond to, but
the photograph of the creator on the back include offers improved proof of Harvey's existence than any photographs I have
viewed of the Lochness monster.
