Tenko lands on an island. The tribe doesn't know what to do with him so a family adopts him. The family gets saved from a disaster because of him.

My favorite part was when the whale got killed. Everybody now got a whale bone and some meat. Tenko reminds me of my dad because he is strong and he exercises. This is a historical fiction book because it takes place in a past time period. At first I felt like something bad was going to happen. Then Tenko didn't die which was a relief.

I recommend this book to anybody who likes historical fiction.
