The Leading Magazine for Primary Educators
The Longest Whale Song
Emily has a dream - but her dear mother is pregnant. And this doesn’t interest Emily whatsoever; who would be interested when someone is about to destroy your perfect family? However, something completely unexpected is about to happen… This book captured the inner heart of a child. I adored how it really clarified the mixed emotions. Questions rattle in your mind and the tension keeps rising. I especially loved the ending (not your usual fairy tale) - it reminded me that sometimes you will have to come face to face with fears. Overall the book was sensational; it will turn your life upside down (in a good way!)
