A poetic and fantastical tale of friendship, which highlights the distress caused to sea creatures by plastic. A debut by both a talented new author and a talented new illustrator.

'Where land becomes sky and the sky becomes sea,I first saw the whale, and the whale first saw me. And high on the breeze came his sweet-sounding song I've so much to show you if you'll come along'. Come on a magical journey of wonder and discovery from misty seaside shorelines to cold ice-capped seas.

This beautiful tale of friendship between a child and a whale invites us to consider our responsibilities towards the environment and makes a direct plea to end plastic pollution.
