About the book
For many, the loss of a loved one can often be the beginning of an inward journey that can be both empowering and deeply reflective. Whale Fall tells the story of Baleen, a whale who has reached the end of her life. Upon her passing it becomes clear that this is just the beginning for the many sea creatures who will strive, thrive and barely survive in the underwater ecosystem that her passing creates.
Each beautifully illustrated chapter of Whale Fall tells the story of an individual sea creature meant to embody many of the complex emotions experienced during a loss by both children and adults. Written by a professional scientist and educator, this book tells a biologically accurate and compelling story designed to facilitate conversations about grief with a few laughs along the way!
