Little Hector and the Big Blue Whale

Author(s): Ruth Paul

NZ Picture Books

A gorgeous new picture book for young children to find out all about the tiny and endangered Hector's dolphin.

Introducing . . . Little Hector!

A small but daring dolphin, Little Hector swims out into the deep blue ocean. He meets many dangers - and an unlikely friend - and proves you are never too small to have BIG adventures.

Children will love meeting Little Hector and his friends, and will also learn how we can help to look after our precious marine environment and its inhabitants.

Little Hector is a small but daring dolphin who has had enough of playing it safe, so he follows his bigger friends out to sea. But there are dangers to navigate and lessons to learn about who he can trust. Luckily, he makes a new friend in Blue Whale, who helps him find the way home.

The first of a new series starring Little Hector, this is a charming story about friendship and finding your rightful place in the ocean. Included is a page of facts about the Hector's dolphin and there is a FREE soft plush toy dolphin with each book (while stocks last). Ruth Paul won the picture book category in this year's NZ Book Awards for Children and Young Adults for her delightful I Am Jellyfish that features a glow-in-the-dark cover.
