The Tale of the Whale Book Front Cover.P


Where land becomes sky and the sky becomes sea,

I first saw the whale and the whale first saw me...

So begins a lyrical journey of wonder and discovery and a very special friendship. But it is also a journey that brings us an important message that the whale wants us to hear, if we are willing to listen.

The Tale of the Whale is beautifully illustrated by Padmacandra and published in the UK by Scallywag Press.

‘Not since The Snowman has a journey conjured so much sheer joy, connection and imagination… empowering and positive, a book that explores our connection with the natural world, text and images working beautifully together.' BOOKS FOR KEEPS
