As the tide drifts out, magnificent creatures are left on the beach . . . stranded. As the whales settle helplessly on the sand, humans start to arrive. They carry buckets and spades, wetsuits and white sheets. Can the stranded upokohue be saved? A heartfelt story of loss and coming together, written by volunteer marine mammal medic Linda Jane Keegan with illustrations by Isobel Joy Te Aho-White.
