The World of Whales

Get to Know the Giants of the Ocean

Dive into an exploration of these majestic mammals, one of the most fascinating animal species on the planet.

Shortlisted in the AOI's World of Illustration Awards 2020 - Children's Publishing category

Language Edition
You already know that whales aren't fish, but did you know they are mammals, just like us humans, who need to hold their breath under water? In The World of Whales we explore many interesting facts about these fantastic animals, looking at the habits and characteristics that make the many species of this family so special. From the stealthy orcas that traverse the seas, to the beautiful songs of humpbacks and the booming calls of the blue whales, we immerse ourselves in the lives of these grandiose swimmers. Join our subaquatic expedition to follow agile fins and flukes, learn about their routines, and marvel as these marine giants breach the ocean’s surface.
