The Little Crooked Bookshelf

The Storm Whale in Winter

by Benji Davies 

This week's pick is from cottager Kara LaReau.

What it's all about
When Noi's father doesn't come home on an icy winter night, Noi goes out looking for him, and finds himself stranded. Who will save him? Might he find himself reunited with a familiar friend?

Why it's on The Little Crooked Bookshelf…
The Storm Whale (the prequel to this book) is an all-time fave in our house (as is anything by Benji Davies, tbh), and this lovely new story does not disappoint!

A sample illustration…

Why kids will love it…
It features an intrepid boy, a daring rescue, and of course, whales.

Why grown-ups will love it…
It's a beautiful tribute to friendship and family, and a perfect bedtime story for these cold winter nights.
