Storm Whale by Sarah Brennan, illustrated by Jane Tanner
Reviewed by Hanna, age 8
I found this book very emotional and poetic. The pictures are so beautiful. I like how the illustrator adds more colour on each page.
In the book, a whale is stranded on the beach and the girl and her sisters use buckets to wet the whale. After a sleepless stormy night, they run down to the beach …
‘And there, on the beach, on the golden shale,
Was not one sign of the stranded whale.’
Luckily, the whale is safely back in the ocean.
