A Thousand Pails of Water

Written by Ron Roy
Illustrations by Vo-Dinh Mai
Little Yukio comes face to face with a beached whale and he makes a promise to the animal to save him.  Can a little boy from a village who hunts whales actually save one?  What does it take to make this happen?  This is an older book with black and white illustrations but a compelling story about the power of a child’s vision and how a community and the relationships betweens fathers and sons can make a tremendous difference.
