Humpback whales move around the pacific ocean starting from Hawaii, Alaska, to California. The book shows their journey all the way to Hawaii to California. Normally, they go to Alaska, where they can get abundant food source - creel shrimp. Then they go to California Bay to give a birth for their child. The book documents and follows the birth of humpback whales and their life underwater.
