A humpback whale gets lost and wanders underneath the Golden Gate Bridge at the San Francisco Bay. Everyone would watch him since whales were not supposed to be in those shallaw waters. He went even further on up the Sacramento River. Scientists knew he would die if he didn't get back to the ocean. People worked together and to get him back to the ocean, but they had several setbacks along the way.

I've had this book since I was a child. Ever since Free Willy, I have been very interested in whales. This story was so great to me since it is true! At the end of the story there are pictures of the real whale Humphrey and more to the story of his survival.

Classroom Extension: Read during Marine life unit. Study why whales cannot survive in freshwater and must live in salt water/ ( )
