A fantastical, rhyming tale of friendship, which highlights the distress caused to sea creatures by plastic.

“Where land becomes sky and the sky becomes sea, I first saw the whale, and the whale first saw me. And high on the breeze came his sweet-sounding song ‘I’ve so much to show you, if you’ll come along’.”

Come on a magical journey of wonder and discovery, from misty seaside shorelines to cold ice-capped seas. This beautiful tale of friendship between a child and a whale invites us to consider our responsibilities towards the environment and makes a direct plea to end plastic pollution.
