About the Author

Jennifer O'Connell is the bestselling author and illustrator of the picture book, Ten Timid Ghosts. She is the author of It's Halloween Night! and the illustrator of A Garden of Whales, among others. A two-time recipient of the Christopher Award, Jennifer also creates illustrations for book covers and magazines. To research The Eye of the Whale, Jennifer traveled to San Francisco, where she met Captain Mick Menigoz and rode his rescue boat, Superfish, out into the Pacific Ocean to the area where the events in the book took place. This experience fueled her inspiration as she created the images and words of this extraordinary story. Jennifer lives with her husband, Kevin, in Bethesda, Maryland, and speaks frequently about her books and the bookmaking process.

Reviews

This true story of courage and compassion is brought to life by stunning illustrations. You will be awed and humbled by the deep connections possible between humans and animals. And you will be inspired to do all you can to help protect whales.--Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE, Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute & UN Messenger of Peace
With this story that amazes while it informs, readers cannot help but be touched.
This is a beautiful story, one of the most moving I have heard about, showing that a whale is capable of gratitude and can understand that some humans, at least, want to help whales, not harm them. The paintings and the story are simply enchanting. I don't believe it is possible to read this without tears, but good tears for a change! I highly recommend it to all children, who will understand its significance immediately!--Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, author of When Elephants Weep
This is a rare and important story about humane efforts to help a free-swimming whale--with a happy ending. It will inspire readers of all ages to become stewards of the natural world.--Dr. Frances Gulland DVM, Senior Scientist, The Marine Mammal Center, Sausalito, California
