tale of a whale of a friendship!
Something big had come ashore. It seemed to have a tail.
Pixie now was staring at . . . a giant washed-up whale!
Pixie Picklespeare lives on a tiny island where there's no one
to play with . . . until a friendly whale washes ashore. With
Pixie's help (sort of), Beachy is soon back in the water, where
the two play marvelous games. However, Beachy knows he must migrate
to be with other whales. As he disappears into the deep, Pixie
feels that she's lost her dear friend forever. But when he returns
months later, Pixie learns that at special times of the year,
she and Beachy will be together again!
