Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  TKono
Whaling Season is a journey through a spring season in the Arctic Circle in Alaska with bowhead whale scientist, John Craighead George, or "Craig." As you follow Craig, vivid pictures help describe the process of a thorough examination of a bowhead whale. The tribe that ensures that the whaling is purely for tradition and culture are the American Indian tribe, the Inuiat. Once the whales are harvested, Craig studies them to see what effects pollution is having on the environment. In the midst of the season, Craig and his fellow scientists have a contest to see who can get the most data. Craig and his scientists also study the DNA of the whales to see if the whales are evolving or adapting to pollution in any way. Overall, Whaling Season is a very interesting and factual book.

Whaling Season is a nonfiction book that lets you feel like you are there in Alaska. I loved the book because of the interesting facts in all of the amazingly written detail. As you go through the season, you learn more about Craig and his team, and that they are all very smart, willing, and committed people.

The author, Peter Lourie, grabs you into the season while Craig and his scientists study the whales in the Arctic. I would definitely recommend this book to people of all ages because it is interesting and has great imagery.
