From the author of The Girl Who Stole an Elephant comes another brilliant escapade. A thrilling adventure set in fictional Sri Lanka, jam-packed with peril and kidnap and a huge blue whale!
Razi, a local fisherboy, is watching turtle eggs hatch when he sees a boat bobbing into view. With a chill, he notices a small, still hand hanging over the side… Inside is Zheng, who’s escaped a shipwreck and is full of tales of sea monsters and missing treasure. But the villains who are after Zheng are soon after Razi and his sister, Shifa, too. And so begins an exhilarating adventure in the shadow of the biggest sea monster of them all…
Our January 2021 Ages 9-10 Book of the Month
For kids aged 9 and over, our January Book of the Month pick is the exhilarating The Boy Who Met a Whale. The second title from Nizrana Farook, the author of one of 2020’s biggest selling books – and her debut – The Girl Who Stole an Elephant. The Boy Who Met a Whale is another brilliant escapade, jam-packed with peril, kidnapping, missing treasure and a huge blue whale!
This thrilling adventure is set in tropical Sri Lanka and introduces and educates the reader on different cultures through our protagonists Razi, Zheng and Shifa. It is also so important for children to see a diverse range of characters in books, especially when it is characters they can see themselves reflected in, and this is a great example of such a book. We’ve chosen this book for all these reasons and more, plus it’s perfect for escaping reality and losing yourself in a completely different country and adventure!
