Cosmos the Curious Whale
When Cosmos the baby humpback whale learns about the creatures that live in the world, he wants to see some of them for himself. He sets off on an adventure to the South Pole to find polar bears and penguins. His whale friends try to warn him that he is making a big mistake but Cosmos is so excited about his plans that he won’t stop to listen.
