Tom Hassler is no ordinary boy. He can fly, for a start, and talk to sea creatures. But can he stop the slaughter of innocent whales and their calves in the Great Southern Ocean? Is he brave enough to stand in front of their harpoons, if that's what it takes? In the Antarctic, a group of dastardly whale hunters are on the prowl. Tom's amazing grandmother reviews the terrible scenes from the monitoring lab at Castle Hassler. Desperately, she calls the sea creatures together to defend the helpless whales -- but will they be in time? And what will Tom be asked to do now, to justify his fancy new title as the Hope of the Sea People? So many questions and so little time to find the answers...and does anyone know what a Xakarax is and where you can find one?
