Captain Schumann’s Big Blue Sightseer,Wildwood New Jersey:
"I appoint Winston the Whale as ambassador of the seas. If reading about Winston’s concern for his ocean friends can suggest to our children and their parents that we all need to work together to survive, what a great world it could be. Thanks Renee! What’s next on your voyage with Winston?"
