When Holly wakes up and sees the whale on the beach she can hardly believe her eyes. Soon she is at the forefront of an island-wide movement to save the whale. But things are not as simple as the young girl would like and she has to deal with the ambitions of a wide group of people. Laced throughout with the important theme of death, this is a powerful and hugely enjoyable novel by Smarties Gold Medal winning author Sally Grindley.
Sally Grindley lives in Cheltenham. She has been involved with children's books nearly all her working life, first as editor of the children's book club Books for Children and for almost as long as a children's author.
