A tender and heart-warming new story from the world of The Storm Whale.
Noi isn't at all sure about staying at Grandma's. Grandma boils seaweed for soup, and there's not much to do on the tiny island where she lives where the wind cuts in and the grass grows sideways . . .
But that's before Noi gets swept up in the dramatic rescue that will mark the beginning of their touching new friendship.
Noi, whom we met in the award-winning The Storm Whale and the sequel, The Storm Whale in Winter, is going to spend the summer at Grandma’s place. Her house is on a tiny rock surrounded by water and the only visitors are the birds. Noi is a bit wary of Grandma, who boils seaweed for soup and snores like an old walrus. She is too busy to play so one morning at low tide Noi creeps away across the sand and finds a big rock full of exciting holes that he imagines to be a castle or a smuggler’s den.
A storm blows in and Noi discovers a little injured bird. But when he tries to find a path home to Grandma’s place, the tide has turned...
Davies’ gorgeous new picture book features a dramatic rescue and a touching new friendship. Beautifully written and illustrated, it’s a delight to read and will appeal to children aged 3 to 6 years.
