Winner of the Governor General’s Literary Award — IllustrationWinner of the CLA Amelia Frances Howard – Gibbon Illustrator’s AwardWinner of the Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver AwardWinner of the IODE Book Award – Toronto ChapterIn this timeless story set on the West Coast, an old man lives alone on a bluff overlooking the sea and tends his garden. And waits. Only when the whales return each year to the bay in front of his cottage is his loneliness eased. One day, his daughter and her baby return home to live with the old man, bringing a renewed sense of purpose to his life. As his granddaughter grows, the old man passes on a wealth or knowledge and wisdom as well as his passion for the whales. And each year they wait together for the whales to appear. A gentle story that illuminates the unique friendship between grandparent and child, Waiting for the Whales also suggests that aging and death are only part of a greater cycle of rebirth and continuity.
