I loved this book! It’s a simple, sweet story about friendship. This is the 2nd book for the boy and his whale friend. In the first Noi rescues the little whale trapped on the beach by a summer storm. Now it’s winter, and his dad’s gone to sea. When he doesn’t return, Noi searches but gets lost too. He crosses the sea ice to find the boat trapped in ice, and his dad nowhere in sight. Noi escapes in deep-sea dreams but awakens to a bump. It’s the storm whale and his family pushing their friend to shore where his dad’s waiting. Winter passes. Spring returns, and Noi smiles every time he looks out to sea and remembers the night his friend rescued him.
Whenever I read or write, I find a comfy chair with a great view. I get my favorite drink, stretch out, and let the words take me away.
