The Whale and the Boy

Author: Noémi Kiss
Illustrator: Jacqueline Molnár

Have you heard of the boy who was as small as an itty-bitty fly when he was born? Who could fit into the palm of your hand? Years later, when this boy grew up, he could hide himself from prying eyes no matter how hard they pried. He became utterly unnoticeable. So of course you haven’t heard of him – until now. A unique tale of finding fortitude, acceptance and friendship, with a strong Nordic feel to it and simultaneously a reprise of the Jack and the Beanstalk tale, a love letter to nature, and even a motivational tale to help children to find their courage and learn to love themselves. All of this is complemented by stunning, breathtakingly beautiful illustrations from Jacqueline Molnár.
