The Whale’s Tale is an exciting young adult science fiction novel set in a future where the Whale Nation has brought space travel back from the brink of extinction. Humpback whales tour the galaxy in massive spaceships called “The Whaling Fleet” performing Whalesong to receptive audiences. After she’s caught stealing a computer file, Japanese teenage girl, Uki, finds herself ‘serving time’, touring the galaxy with a humpback whale called Targe and his dolphin sidekick, Charlie. Uki doesn’t like Targe, Targe doesn’t like Uki, and Charlie thinks he’s in for the worst tour of his life until they discover Uki has a special talent.
