Description


In this sequel to The Storm Whale, the boy, Noi, is caught in a storm at sea and his whale friend comes to his rescue.

When Noi's dad sails out on one last fishing trip before winter, Noi waits for him at home. But as the storm worsens and his dad does not return, Noi decides to go looking for his dad. But the storm is powerful and dangerous, and soon Noi, too, is stuck in the icy sea. When it seems that all hope is lost, a friend comes to help Noi and his father. Poignant and evocative, this is a beautiful celebration of friendship and family, and the special bond between a father and son.

Praise For…


"Once again, Davies’s careful storytelling and muted artwork draw substantial emotional depth out of Noi and his father’s seaside life, a setting both realistic and dashed with magic." —Publishers Weekly, on The Storm Whale in Winter

Big Friends:

"Excellent, believable advice, with boxes-what could be better than that?" —Kirkus Reviews

"Sarah captures the joys and pain of a camaraderie that seems exquisitely perfect—until it isn't. . . . Davies makes the story sing from beginning to end with lovely drawings that feel sturdy and resolutely optimistic, even when Birt is at his lowest." —Publishers Weekly

The Storm Whale:

"An understated, profoundly charming little fable." —The Financial Times

"Simple but powerful. . . The world may still be as big and lonely and incomprehensible as the ocean, but still it's possible to find tremendous, heart-stopping tenderness." —The New York Times

"With its windblown illustrations and gratifying arc, The Storm Whale would be wonderful to read in the safe harbor of bedtime." —The Wall Street Journal
