A follow-up to the best-selling The Storm Whale, winner of the 2014 inaugural Oscar's First Book Prize in association with the Evening Standard. Last summer, Noi rescued a little whale when it had been washed ashore in a great storm. Now he longs and longs to see his friend again. Winter sets in, colder than anyone can remember and Noi worries about his whale. Can he survive the harsh conditions? Then, one night, he thinks he sees the whale out at sea and rushes outside for a longed-for glimpse of it. But Noi reckons without the relentless snow and ice and soon he is lost. Who - or what - will rescue Noi? A truly beautiful work packing a real emotional punch. Absolutely unmissable.
