Lovely illustrations complement this tale of a lonely father-son relationship and a sweet, lost little whale.

This lovely book by Benji Davies has heart as big as a whale. I love his gouache illustrations and especially the page of Papa in the kitchen making jam with bread and little Noi painting a whale tale. Sweet sweet sweet.

Sweet book! Enjoyable read for both my daughter (age 4, whale enthusiast) and I. Nicely illustrated. Definitely considering buying to add to her library.

I had to read this quiet, lovely book a couple of times through to get all the undercurrents. But after I did, it became one of my favorite books of the month.
