As an expression of words, watercolours, and lines – about love, loss, life, and learning to let go, ‘A Whale’s Tale’ will appeal to all who resonate with these themes. Set against the global COVID-19 pandemic, many may connect with the depiction of this current landscape of the COVID new normal.
The story is also a love letter to Melbourne – a city whose famed food and coffee culture kept it going through six lockdowns in a rotating merry-go-round of delivery cyclists. Puppies at play and picnics are plentiful through this pandemic.
It is a picture book about the creation of a picture book, and the world that inspired it. We all have our own whale tale. This is mine.
It’s going to be a ‘Wonder’-full story.
