Synopsis

Told through the eyes of a whale and her calf, this mesmerisingly beautiful book is a story of migration, family and the strength of parental love. And a celebration of the wonders of nature.

"We're going on a long journey, Little Whale," sang her mother. "We're going home."

Travelling from the warm weather of the south, through fragile coral reefs, kelp forests and glittering shoals of fish, Little Whale follows her mother to the icy north. With her mother guiding and protecting her all the way home.

With atmospheric charcoal drawings and gentle, lyrical storytelling, Little Whale is perfect for sharing with your little one.

"Evocative charcoal drawings bring the underwater world to stunning life; fans of Blue Planet will be mesmerised." The Bookseller
