About – The Night Whale:
A grandmother and grandchild look out for the Night Whale, a magical sky being last seen when Nana was a child herself. The story transports the reader off to a world of wonder and beauty, as they soar over cities and landscapes on the back of the Night Whale, far away from home and back again. This is a beautifully lyrical and stunningly illustrated picture book about adventures and moving on, helping children to come to terms with saying goodbye, and the majestic Night Whale’s reassuring message is that anything is possible.
