A moving, poetic story about a whale in captivity who longs for the ocean . . . because whales don't belong in fishbowls, do they?Wednesday is a whale who lives in a fishbowl smack dab in the middle of a city--it's the only home she's ever known. Cars whizz around her and people ...hurry past; even the sun and moon circle above. But if she leaps high enough out of her bowl, Wednesday can see it- a calm bit of blue off in the distance. When a girl in a paisley dress tells Wednesday You belong in the sea, the whale starts to wonder, what is the sea? Readers will cheer--and get all choked up-- when, one day, Wednesday leaps higher than ever before and sets in motion a breathtaking chain of events that will carry her to her rightful home. Touching, and ultimately uplifting, here is a story about a lonely creature longing to be free--and longing to find someone just like her.
