Did you see any whales, Cap’n? – 1242

“Did you see any whales, Cap’n?” asked Boldy who was imagining himself as a great explorer of the deep seas.”I had a great uncle called ‘Inkredible Henry’who knew all the whales in the world by first name.”
This was news to all the other burds, who by now though had heard all about Boldy’s ancestors, real and imagined…….”Cap’n Legg announced that he had not only seen a school of whales, but he had spoken to some and they had sailed through the night as well.”……from The Burds of Burdle, Chapter 9
