Super Interesting Fact About the Book!!

  1. This is a fictional book based off of a true incident. In 2019, a Cuvier's beaked whale washed up on the shores off the Davao Gulf with 88 pounds of plastic in its stomach. He was a young male who starved because he ate plastic instead of food. Boukáli's father (the garbage whale) played the role of this Cuvier's beaked whale and Kaia, the author, came up with the story behind the scenes.
