The Tail of the Whale

Ellie Patterson’s The Tail of the Whale is a sweet story about using your imagination to escape the gloom and grey of winter. Written in soothing rhyming verse, the story takes us to a fantastical multi-coloured land. Deep beneath the sea, the imaginary world is a place where fishes dance and shimmer in a kaleidoscope of colours. And when the show is over and, on the tail of a whale, you ride back to the top, the grey and gloom might just have disappeared under a blanket of sparkling, white snow.

Christine Pym’s illustrations couldn’t be cuter and bring the words to life beautifully.

Recommended for 3-7 yr olds. PB $14.95
