Read full description of the books:
Quiet and meditative, An Ocean World seemed to me like a large-format, mostly wordless graphic novel.
It tells the story of a whale who lives in a tank at a public aquarium, but grows too big for her confines and is released. (Perhaps this was some wishful thinking on behalf of the author, as releases of captive whales rarely happen in real life.) The whale traverses the expanse of the ocean, and by the end she has finally found another whale as a companion.
Obviously a very simple story, but I’m glad it wasn’t ruined by text.
An Ocean World might bring up some valuable discussion about the keeping of whales in captivity.
