Orca, as Ethan and I have learned, are actually in the dolphin family. They are smart animals with complex social lives, not unlike ourselves. This family is led by the matriarch, Granny, who, with the birth of a new baby last month, is now a great, great grandmother! Just a human grandparents do, Granny babysits, plays, and teachers the littlest members of her family, helping them to learn to communicate, hunt for salmon, and stay clear of dangers.
Disclosure: I received this book to review, but all opinions and thoughts are my own (and Ethan’s!)
