Call the cops

Hannah brings a book home every day from school which has to be read by Hannah to someone before she returns to school the next day.

Friday's book was "My Friend Whale" which is a moving story of a boy who has a blue whale for a friend. As the story unfolds the reader learns amazing facts about blue whales. At the end of the book, the boy is no longer visited by the whale and the boy fears that the whale won't return.

At the end of the book there's a brief description of the extent of diminishing whale numbers and the causes, together with suggestions of organisations to contact if more information is wanted.

Ths evening Hannah said "I want to stop the people who kill the whales." "How do you want to do that?" I asked.

She thought.

"I'll call the police."
