Staff Reviews


While Noi's father is out at work, a little whale washes ashore! Sweet illustrations illuminate Noi's attempt to rescue the whale--by means of wagon, bathtub, and (eventually) boat. A very charming story that shows how bizarre surprises can bring together parent and child. — Aubrey Restifo

Description


Every day, in a house by the sea, a little boy watches his father leave for a long day's work. One night, a great storm washes a small whale onto the beach. The boy discovers the whale is a good listener. The father discovers the boy is lonely. Together, they return the whale to the sea. And from that day on, the boy learns that the father can be a good listener too, in Benji Davies's heartwarming tale, The Storm Whale.
