For the Adventurous Child
About the Book
A young whale falls in love with the moon. On her quest for love, she reaches the most remote corner of earth, the Arctic. In those cold waters, she finds herself alone and disappointed about not finding the moon after so much effort. She meets a couple of wise narwhals who teach her that relationships are complicated, and sometimes they do not end up the way we want. The wise narwhals showed the whale how to find her way back home using the stars as a guide; they also took her on a marvellous journey through night sky mythology.
