A beautiful slipcase edition of The Storm Whale and The Storm Whale in Winter from the award-winning author and illustrator Benji Davies. Follow Noi's story in these poignant and moving books, now in a slipcase - the perfect gift for a loved one.
A review for The Storm Whale in Winter : In The Storm Whale in Winter Benji Davies creates a story of love and courage that is tender, touching and feels utterly true. As winter draws in Noi misses the little whale he befriended last summer; no matter how often he looks out to sea, there’s never any sign. But the storm whale returns when Noi needs him most, rescuing the little boy when he is stranded on the ice-bound sea. In a book of light and dark the contrast between cosy interiors and the snowstorm that rages outside is breath-taking, and there’s an extraordinary silent beauty to the underwater images of the whale family. The reunions - between boy and whale, and boy and his father - are heart-warming, and a final image joyfully unites them all. A book that deserves a place on every shelf. ~ Andrea Reece
