“I just did a project on or orcas and I think I got a+ on it. From your book I learned a lot more from you I didn’t even know half the stuff I know now you made me a lot smarter. Thanks, Aaron Weir” (Amazon Review)
“Wonderful book on killer whales. It has great photos and video links. My daughter is writing a book report on this book. Highly recommended!” (Amazon Review)
“My congratulations to the publishers of this book… This is more than a book, it is a well illustrated and well written book, but each idea, each sub-section of the book is linked to a video. The most amazing video I saw was a “KILLER WHALE VS. WHITE SHARK”. Who do you think wins? It is not even a fight, it is a slaughter, the huge white shark is next seen upside down in the killer whales’ jaws… and the killer whale comes back to where the tourists are to show them and boast that it won!!!
Unbelievable! I would have nightmares except that killer whales have never attacked humans. They seem to know that they shouldn’t attack humans… and they communicate with humans, because they know we’re interested in watching them, too.
I envy a teacher who would have this book to teach a class of children about killer whales. What a way to teach a fascinating lesson! I loved this book, and I will tell teachers to not miss it.
Five stars, because I couldn’t give it ten stars.” (Amazon Review)
