Told through the eyes of a whale and her calf, this mesmerisingly beautiful book is a story of migration, family and the strength of parental love. And a celebration of the wonders of nature.

“We’re going on a long journey, Little Whale,” sang her mother. “We’re going home.”

Travelling from the warm weather of the south, through fragile coral reefs, kelp forests and glittering shoals of fish, Little Whale follows her mother to the icy north. With her mother guiding and protecting her all the way home.

With atmospheric charcoal drawings and gentle, lyrical storytelling, Little Whale is perfect for sharing with your little one.

“Evocative charcoal drawings bring the underwater world to stunning life; fans of Blue Planet will be mesmerised.” The Bookseller

Also by Jo Weaver: Little One, Little Tigers

The evocative blue tinged charcoal drawings and the lyrical story adds to the wonder and mystery of the ocean. This is perfect for Mother's Day and those who enjoyed Blue Planet. Mesmerising.
South Wales Evening Post
Lyrical text is complemented by subtle charcoal drawings which evoke the motion of the waves and darkness of the deep sea journey in this striking new picture book.
Evening Echo (Cork)
This book should find a ready place at home or in school. Weaver's almost monochrome illustrations are full of fascinating detail too.
