Description

Product Description

Every day, in a house by the sea, a little boy watches his father leave for a long day''s work. One night, a great storm washes a small whale onto the beach. The boy discovers the whale is a good listener. The father discovers the boy is lonely. Together, they return the whale to the sea. And from that day on, the boy learns that the father can be a good listener too, in Benji Davies''s heartwarming tale, The Storm Whale.

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2—Noi lives by the sea with his father and six cats. His dad leaves early for work on his fishing boat and doesn''t return until dark. Noi appears to be around six and is extremely lonely until the day he finds a small beached whale. Instead of trying to return it to the water, Noi hefts it into his wagon and puts it in his bathtub. He plays music for it and tells it stories. When his father returns, he discovers the whale, and together they return it to the sea. The man realizes how lonely his son has been, and on last pages, they are seen having a picnic together. The story will be confusing to the target audience. It would appear that the whale is an imaginary friend that Noi has conjured up to stave off his loneliness. Obviously, he would be physically incapable of moving a whale, no matter how small. However, if that''s the case, it makes no sense that a father would take a small boy out on at night in a rowboat on choppy seas. The illustrations appear to be watercolor and have some of the charming details found in the work of Barbara Cooney, but this is an additional purchase.—Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ

Review

“A quietly affecting and visually striking book.” ―The Horn Book

“A gentle, atmospheric father and son tale, this will draw kids who appreciate a touch of mysticism and the parent-kid adventure.” ―BCCB

“Charming.” ―School Library Journal

“*This imaginative, offbeat and original tale, lightly dusted with believable magic, perfectly captures a generous child''s loyalty and dedication and ends with comfort and subtlety . . . A selection children will embrace and come back to time and time again.” ―Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW


“Deeply empathic storytelling is matched by crisp, evocative scenes of coastal life, from the ramshackle, weathered home where Noi and his father live to the endless expanse of the ocean at night.” ―Publisher''s Weekly, STARRED REVIEW

About the Author

Benji Davies is the author and illustrator of The Storm Whale. As a child, he was often found painting at the kitchen table . . . a habit he has continued into adulthood. He lives in London with his wife, Nina.

We found The Storm Whale through our love of the Bizzy Bear series. Storm Whale works great as a read-aloud for toddlers, though it is longer and not interactive. It will hold interest later into childhood though.

The story itself is a bit subtle, and I am always fascinated by what my daughter seems to get out of it. It''s well-drawn and an interesting setting with identifiable characters, and we have really enjoyed it.

There is also a sequel called The Storm Whale in Winter which is a great extension of the original.

We normally buy used boos from the thrift shop because it’s so much less expensive, but for special occasions I like to get a couple of nice and new books that you can’t find everywhere. This was definitely worth it.

The book wasn''t quite what I expected and a little disappointing. It''s a short, cute read, but I feel like a couple of additional pages would''ve connected some of the dots better.

My four year old son is obsessed with whales, fishing and the sea. He loves it! I love it because it''s beautifully illustrated. It is very quiet and poetic. It gives you space to think. The paintings add a lot to the story, and gives us the opportunity to have a conversation about the book. It makes me happy when my son is captured by something that is not violent or overly dramatic.

Thank goodness I bought two copies of this book because otherwise I wouldn''t have a gift for my nephew. Everything about this book is wonderful. I love the artist''s palette and each page is beautiful. The text is spare, but perfect. There are so many wonderful details to enjoy -- a cat peeking out from its position on a shelf, the two mugs and cookies that Noi has set out for himself and his rescued whale, the texture of rain falling on the sea, and so much more. Adults and children will cherish this book.

This is a wonderful book for a three year old. The little boy goes to the beach after a storm to find a baby whale washed up on the shore. He takes it home to look after it and puts it in the bath (we don''t ask how he carried it up the stairs). His father, who has been out on his fishing boat, returns and later finds the whale. Together they return it to the sea, but to Noi it is his friend, and he hopes to see it again (get the sequel too). The text is expressive and clear, and the beautifully painted illustrations of the fishermen''s houses, the six cats to find and count, and all the detail are wonderful prompts for discussion. Thank you, Benji Davies.

This book is a little reminiscent of Oliver’s Jeffer’s, Lost and Found and the writing style reminds me of Oliver Jeffers. So if you/ your children like his books then this book is likely to be a hit. I find the book a sad tale, it has a happy end but the start of the book is quite lonely and bleak. Children don’t seem to read into it in the same way but my children did ask where the boy’s Mum is. There are lots of talking points within the story and the illustrations are beautiful. It’s a short story so works well with younger children. We especially love the pair of gulls that feature throughout the illustrations in the book. This is a book that has been read several times so it passes the children''s Judgement!

Gorgeous pictures and a really lovely story to read. My 5 year old loved reading it and requested the other two books in the series. The text is simple enough that he could read the books by himself and the pictures are absolutely lovely to look at. Highly recommend
