From the book cover:
"The largest animal to ever live is one of the hardest to see. There aren't many Blue Whales left in the world, and they spend their time under water, so most people have never seen one. But thanks to a remarkable team of scientists, who don't mind working in smelly, messy conditions, a 150 ton, fully grown whale has been raised from the grave and put on display for all to see. This book tells the astounding tale of skinning an animal larger than a dinosaur, moving it across the country, then hanging its re-assembled skeleton from the ceiling. An amazing accomplishment."
