A Whale of a Mystery
Jan. 15, 2007

Chiang told her young readers about an investigation by scientists into the puzzling death of a North Atlantic right whale that was spotted drifting off the coast of Nova Scotia. She described various clues that the researchers followed in trying to determine the cause of death. They eventually concluded that a large, blunt object had hit the whale on one side. Catherine Hughes, a senior editor for National Geographic Kids magazine, said the story met all the criteria. The mystery is an immediate draw for kids, as is the compelling species, the ever-popular whale, Hughes said. The scientific process used to solve the mystery both teaches and holds readers interest. Susan Milius, a reporter for Science News, said Chiang showed scientific process in action with vivid details. Whats not to love about decayed whale flesh oozing like toothpaste"

Certificate of Merit

The judging panel recommended a special Certificate of Merit for the runner-up in the childrens news category. Sina Loeschke, a writer for GEOlino a German science magazine for children wrote an engaging piece about sea slugs. With lively, imaginative writing and colorful pictures, the story deftly introduces readers to these unusual ocean denizens and cogently explains their biological quirks, said John Carey of Business Week. Loeschkes piece was published on Feb. 7, 2007.
