The Boy And The Whale



A delightful story about a majestic friendship. There was a boy who liked to spend all his time alone. But one day he fell asleep... In dreamlike images, Linde Faas tells the story of a chance meeting between a boy and a giant whale. The encounter makes the boy realise how wonderful it is to have: Someone to play with Someone to explore with Someone to be in awe of... to have a friend. A lovely moving picture book that makes one long to read it over and over again... and to have a friend like the whale.
