What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

In this sequel to The Storm Whale, the boy, Noi, is caught in a storm at sea and his whale friend comes to his rescue. When Noi’s dad sails out on one last fishing trip before winter, Noi waits for him at home. But as the storm worsens and his dad does not return, Noi decides to go looking for his dad. But the storm is powerful and dangerous, and soon Noi, too, is stuck in the icy sea. When it seems that all hope is lost, a friend comes to help Noi and his father. Poignant and evocative, this is a beautiful celebration of friendship and family, and the special bond between a father and son.

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mama who believes you're never too old for magical stories of talking animals and imaginary worlds.
4.5 / 7.0

The illustrations in this book are delightful, and Noi is brave and thoughtful, but I personally don’t think the storyline is that great. Did his dad get out and walk back home? How did the boat survive breaking through all the ice? Just feels a little disjointed, but still a cute, better-than-ok read.
