I bought this for my 3 year old grandson, its such a lovely book , about a lonely little boy who finds a baby whale. Benji Davies' illustrations are atmospheric, but fun, try to spot Nois six cats and I liked his choice of music for the whale. A good story for bedtime as its not too long, but has to be repeated every night!

This story of Noi and his father is warm, beautifully written and even more beautifully illustrated. With each read you get more from it. A bedtime favourite for all of us!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By K. J. Noyes TOP 100 REVIEWER on 24 Mar. 2015
Format: Paperback
A sweet and warm story about family.

Noi lives with his fisherman father and six cays by the sea. Its clear he's quite lonely. Finding a stranded baby whale one day, and trying to help it, he will end up finding his own family again.

It's very brief, but manages to contain this idea in very few words. You get a good feel for Noi's loneliness and his dad's hard life as a fisherman, and the pictures evoke their closer relationship brilliantly (and emotionally) at the end, after the whale is also reunited with his family.

My son liked this, liked counting the cats and he smiled as the whale ended up back with his mummy.

The pictures are great, love thr style. The story reminded me of Alison Jay's Out of the Blue, though this preceded it by a year. The theme of stranded whales works well as a metaphor in picture books.

One for KS1 lessons or ages 2-5 at bedtime.

I purchased this for my two year old son to read. It tell the story of a young boy who discovers a whale washed up to shore during a storm and how the little boy cares for the whale. It is a beautifully written book and the illustrations are lovely as well. it's the perfect length for a younger child to enjoy and engage with. We enjoyed it so much that I have since purchased a copy for a friends child.

this is a favourite with both my 3 year old and 2 year old. The drawings/paintings are achingly poignant and in fact tell their own story-one of those rare books where the pictures seem to speak louder than the words...

Well, the story is not terriblu original and relatively short. A whale washes up on shore and needs rescuing...but stylistically the pictures are absolutely fantastic and quite original. Its been quite popular in our household and i don't tire of looking at the pictures. Nevertheless for my 3 yr old its hasn't held his interest for quite as many sessions because the storyline is well worn.

Our 20 month old absolutely adores this book. We have to read 'Noi'
daily so she can look for the whale and the 'tired man .. shoes off' . A lovely book with great illustrations.
