Bentley, a distinguished vintage motorcar, is worn down by the troubles of everyday family life. He needs to recharge his batteries. He drives through the mountains and down to the sea. While relaxing on the shore, he meets a humpback whale. As he compares his troubles with those of the whale, he is able to put his worries into perspective.

Lisa Rae was an educator in both the English and French schools in Quebec as well as in British Columbia. She summered in Salvage, Bonavista Bay, for over three decades before moving there permanently. Now she spends her time on a variety of creative projects. She is married to Peter Pickersgill, who illustrated this book.
