Four-Day Planet is a science-fiction novel by H. Beam Piper, first published in 1961. It is the story of Fenriss, a planet with a 2000 hour rotation rate. That is, any given spot on the planet is in darkness for 1000 hours, and sunlit for another 1000. Against this background is the story of a pioneer colony, inhabiting the Four Day Planet so they can hunt 'sea monsters' to obtain the long chain hydrocarbon molecules in their blubber. The protagonist is a 17 year old boy reporter who is investigating the corrupt government of the planet.
