“A light-hearted approach to the problem of beached whales, Humphrey’s
story allows librarians to give a happy ‘yes’ to that often-asked question, ‘Is
this a true story?’”— School Library Journal

“What happens to Humphrey makes a fascinating and delightful story for
young and old alike.”—KIdsGrowth.com

Humpback whales are magnificent creatures that sing beautiful songs to each other underwater. In
the whole world there are very few of them, so each one is quite special.
And they are intelligent. Every winter they travel south, every summer they head north, and they

always know the way.
But even whales can make mistakes . . .

In October 1985 a forty-five-foot long, forty-ton humpback whale wandered
into San Francisco Bay and for twenty-six days struggled mightily to find his
way back to the ocean. This true, illustrated story of Humphrey’s adven-
ture has been a children’s favorite for more than twenty-five years. The 2014
edition has updated news on whales but retains the beloved art and text for
big-ocean-mammal lovers everywhere. Adopted for Reading Rainbow.

Wendy Tokuda is a well-known Bay Area media personality with numerous
broadcasting awards.

Richard Hall is an award-winning TV and film producer in Los Angeles,
California.

Hanako Wakiyama lives in southern California and is a widely published
author and illustrator of children’s books.
