Warren the Whale has arrived, swimming ashore this season thanks to the writing of Phyllis Meras and illustrations by Anne Ganz.

The children’s story follows Warren through verse and pictures as he frolics by the beach and gives kids rides on his tale. But then things go awry and Warren ends up in jail until some firemen help him escape and ask him to join their team.

For the rest of this tale of a creature with the very long tail, pick up a copy of Warren the Whale at a bookstore near you.
