The extreme simplicity of The Storm Whale's text belies layers of symbolism that emerge with second, third, and fourth readings — father's reawakening to his son's need for friendship; the treasures that can be left behind by a storm. Readings are more like experiences, as Davies' cinematic illustrations draw readers in with visual details and varying scope. A new favorite that's repeatedly readable for the very young and emotionally compelling for adults.
Publisher Summary
A little boy who misses his working father brings home a beached whale for whom he plays music and tells stories, but when his father learns just how lonely his son is, the two return the whale to the sea and spend time together.

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.
