The Boy and the Whale

Linde Faas


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.
