The stunning bestseller by Benji Davies, winner of the inaugural Oscar's First Book Prize, now available in board format! Noi and his father live in a house by the sea, his father works hard as a fisherman and Noi often has only their six cats for company. So when, one day, he finds a baby whale washed up on the beach after a storm, Noi is excited and takes it home to care for it. He tries to keep his new friend a secret, but there's only so long you can keep a whale in the bath without your dad finding out. Noi is eventually persuaded that the whale has to go back to the sea where it belongs. For Noi, even though he can't keep it, the arrival of the whale changes his life for the better - the perfect gift from one friend to another.

Recensioner i media

"A future classic and a must have for the discerning picture book fan." * The Booksniffer * "The Storm Whale is an evocative portrayal of a child's need for friendship, told through the sparest of text and imagery in this beautiful picture book." * The ReadingZone * "The Storm Whale is one of those rare picture books that evokes loneliness with such fragility, and that conveys such feeling and beauty that it cannot fail to move its readers... an absolute gem, do not miss out." * Library Mice * "I have to admit that I was fighting back tears by the end. It's just so incredibly sweet and really pulls the heart strings!" * Being Mrs C * "Charming and engaging this book gives lots of scope for child to adult discussion about feeling lonely and saying goodbye to something loved." * Love All Blogs * "Poignant, sensitive and understated [...] this is a not to be missed tale where the narrative thrust and emotional span transcends the simplicity of its words." * Droplets of Ink *
