At the turn of the century, sideshows traveled by train across the country, displaying oddities of one sort or another. Captain Pinkney stopped in Johnstown, Illinois, with his own attraction: a dead humpback whale. Ben and his friend Tommy are on their way to see the whale when Tommy shows Ben his penknife, which he intends to use to get a souvenir. Ben doesn’t want to go along with Tommy’s plan to cut off a piece of the whale. Ben cares about the whale, even if it is dead, and he learns about standing up for what he believes in.
