Orca Rescue—Watch fabulous video!

Dear Readers,

As many of you who attended my Keynote at the Orca/Salmon event this month in Seattle know, I'm at work on a chidlren's book about orcas for my Leopard and Silkie editor, the wonderful Christy Ottaviano. The illustrator is the master artist Wendell Minor, whose painting graced my very first book cover for the novel River of Light in 1978. Wendell and I are having a wonderful time interweaving his illustrations and my text—bringing this book to life. I'll be posting some of my favorite videos of orcas as we progress deeper into the new kid's book. And perhaps a few of the dummy sketches! For now, enjoy this very moving and extraordinary You Tube video of an orca rescue by veteran orca researcher, Dr. Ingrid Visser.

 And here's the lovely art postcard for the Orca/Salmon keynote.
