Summary
What is it like to live as a whale? Experience the life cycle of this animal through its own eyes!

Through the quirky, humorous, and irreverent approach of this book, kids will enjoy learning about the life of these giants of the sea.

With the same engaging approach to nonfiction from You Wouldn't Want to Be/You Wouldn't Want to Live Without, each book in this new series features an animal species picked either for its ubiquitous nature or for its level of endangerment. The books describe key aspects of the life cycle of each animal, such as diet, reproduction and habitat. Illustrated with original art that will feature anthropomorphized animals to add character and expression, this series will provide really engaging content to young readers!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This entry in the How Would You Survive series (4 titles) gives a thorough introduction to "the largest species of dolphin," the killer whale. Stewart writes in the second person, putting readers in the position of the orca as he diagrams the important body parts, giving clear and specific ideas of the creature's physical capabilities. Double-page spreads each tackle a certain topic, with short but dense info-bites set among dynamic watercolor illustrations. Readers will learn how these apex predators swim, eat, hunt, socialize, rear their young, and survive the dangers posed by humans. A final example of Tilikum the killer whale addresses the suffering these creatures face in captivity. Back matter includes a quiz, more fun facts, and an index. A visually appealing and detailed look at a wondrous sea creature."
