KIRKUS REVIEW

 A sweet, rather fey exchange of letters between Emily, who reports seeing a whale in her small goldfish pond, and her teacher, who assures her (politely, then ``forcibly'') that she must be mistaken. Meanwhile, Mr. Blueberry shares facts that Emily finds useful in caring for the whale--which is hugely corporeal in James's deftly drawn, endearing illustrations. Ever undaunted, Emily claims a final sighting at the beach, and ``I said you loved him, too.'' A nicely open-ended balance between the real and the imaginary in a child's world. (Picture book. 4- 8)*justify no*
