Pub. Date:
The outcome of this timely yet timeless nature tale from Micronesia suggests we are all connected in the ecological chain. Whale and Sandpiper engage in a boasting contest over who rules the shoreline, which escalates to nearly destroy the ocean and beach altogether, as well as the creatures and shorebirds who inhabit it. A story about conflict resolution and ecological stewardship is embedded in a jaunty, humorous, colorful presentation.
