Just how did whales get so big. Find out here, it's all here in a wonderful story about LOVE and HAPPINESS - a joyous little treasure for the whole family to share. Stylish and affordable books for children and parents alike.

One of an initial series of 13 titles in a wonderful collection under the banner of The World of Happy, each one of them featuring playful, charming, quirky, joyous and heart-warming stories about positive and uplifting values: love, happiness, freedom, pleasure, being yourself and revelling in the wonders of what it means to be alive and all written and illustrated by Giles Andreae, the creator of Purple Ronnie.

Children will love the funky, colourful animals and funny stories about belching sharks, dancing hippos, knitting gorillas and drumming crickets. Adults will appreciate the sophistication, quirkiness and philosophical content. World of Happy delivers something emotionally rich and complex while being easily accessible to children.

The World of Happy books are a great value addition to any nursery bookshelf which kids will enjoy time and time again.

Synopsis

The Lovely Whales (World of Happy) by Giles Andreae

There was once a time when whales were rather small. But, long ago, there were two whales who CHANGED their kind for good. I LOVE you, said the gentleman, I do. I love you MORE, the lady said right back. I double diddy love you, said the man. Now, something ODD began to happen. At every declaration of desire, each whale became a little BIGGER than before.
