    1. A beautiful book! The large sized illustrations are masterful and it was wonderful to read through the book. I read through the book with my newborn daughter and it was not colorful enough to keep her interest but I will for sure come back to this book when she is older. I think she will find it mesmerizing. It is a great introduction to whale sharks and there is a further description in the back that explain more about whale sharks.


    2. 3.5 starsPoetic language at a leisurely pace, like that of the whale shark, to describe the largest fish on the planet. Simple palette of blues, blacks, whites works very well. I really liked this but it should have ended with "he'll continue his leisurely, endless journey." The next page ("Our earth, planet of water") seemed out of place and took me out of the book that preceded it. If I share with a group, I will likely end the book with the prior page.Why is this animal called a whale shark? [...]


    3. The title is intriguing - who thinks of sharks as 'wandering'? This book explains and gives information in an easy-to understand narrative. We see the shark from various angles, mostly up-close giving the reader the feeling of being underwater with it. Dark blues and white highlights compliment the coloring of the shark done in black cross-hatch lines. Black endpapers have just the slightest hint of white sparkles.


    4. This picture book (translated from Japanese) is a peaceful, poetic introduction to the little-known whale shark. "What human beings believe is the surface of the sea might just be a ceiling of air for all the fish living below." Wonderfully textured, cross-hatched line drawings give a sense of the whale shark's enormous size. Includes a note at the end. Thanks to Katie for pointing out this book!


    5. A poetic, gentle book that invites the reader to swim along with the enormous whale shark. Lovely language.My only quibble: the pictures didn't actually leave me with the sense of grandeur that the words invoked. A larger-format book would do greater justice to this graceful homage.


    6. Simple text is just enough to provide some basic information about these giant creatures. The illustrations may not be initially attractive to many children, but do a nice job of showing what a whale shark might look like under water.







    7. a simple and majestic book about the way a shark rises to the surface and eats. Very simple words and beautiful perfect for storytime and not scary.


    8. This is a beautiful piece of art work that looks at the life of the Whale Shark.Written for children adults will enjoy the drawings.
