Back at the Smithsonian Institution, Lucy, Tomas, Kevin, & Emma are visiting the Whaling Exhibit at the National Museum of American History. The mural of a whale hunt reminds Emma of an old family story. Her great-great-great grandfather was a harpooner on a whaling ship long ago. As Emma tells the story to her friends, the water in the mural seems to shimmer. Suddenly, cold water splashes Emma’s face, & she realizes that she is on a whaling ship over 100 years ago! Caught up in the bustle & excitement of the crew, Emma soon finds herself in a long boat & face to face with a giant sperm whale. Includes a Short History of American Whaling & a Glossary. Full-color illustrations.
