    Review

    The whales have left their ocean home and come to live on land! This creates a wonderful spectacle, and all the children are delighted, but before long people want to go back to the way things were. “Whales go home!” they yell, protesting the whales’ presence on land.

    Finally, a young girl asks the whales why they left the ocean, and the whales tell her how it has become too polluted for them to live in. The people turn their attention to solving the problem, by removing the rubbish from the ocean, and the whales happily return home, leaving behind memories of the time they walked on land.

    Walk of the Whales is a whimsical but also very topical early childhood picture book. The story, while fun, touches on themes of pollution and discrimination in a very accessible way for younger readers.

    The illustrations are vibrant and eye-catching, and use the whales’ size in comparison to their surroundings to create visual humour.
