Meet Onyx and the orcas of J pod, the world’s most famous whales.

Illustrated with stunning photos, this picture book introduces young readers to the orcas humans first fell in love with. The members of J pod live in the Salish Sea, off the coast of Washington and British Columbia. Moby Doll was the first orca ever displayed in captivity, Granny was the oldest orca known to humanity, and Scarlet was the orca humans fought to save.

“A well-crafted informative picture book that could be easily used as a read-aloud or part of research for grades K-2. Highly Recommended.”
