Here is a charming dramatization for the entire family about a boy and a girl who save a friendly whale from whalers and bring about an international crisis.

Jerry Johnson has secretly taught himself to talk to Ooka, a 50-foot whale that has fled from whalers into Puget Sound. With the help of Meg, a neighbor girl, he devises a plan to save Ooka from those who want to hurt or use her. More importantly, Jerry and Meg help Ooka combat the foreign whalers.
