Description

When a majestic whale is stranded near their Scottish hometown, Tulsi and Satchen must summon all their courage to save it in this thrilling adventure from Jasbinder Bilan.

After rowing out to an island near their seaside home, Tulsi and Satchen discover a whale that has been trapped in a fishing net. Determined to try to free the poor creature, they repeatedly dive down into the freezing sea to cut the netting, but eventually, exhausted and with a storm rolling in, they have to admit defeat.


As they head for home to seek help, their boat capsizes in the storm and they’re left clinging to it, dangerously adrift. Just as they think all is lost, help arrives from an unexpected source …


A thrilling adventure with a powerful message about how we need to protect the oceans at its heart.

I absolutely loved this audiobook! I’m not normally a fan of fiction audiobooks although I do listen to non-fiction, however I thought my grandson would like this story. While I was preparing something I decided to put it on and I was hooked straight away. It’s a lovely story about a boy and a girl who are great friends and live in the north of Scotland. One evening they sneak out and climb up the hill where there is a monument of a whale’s jaw. Although Tulsi has an intuitive feeling that something is going on out on the sea, they go home to their respective houses and go to sleep. Next day though the feeling won’t go and she messages Satchen to meet her on the beach, they row over to a nearby island and once again the hear the noise Tulsi heard the night before. It’s a whale calling…….and so their adventure starts!
I was enthralled and I am 100% certain that my grandchildren will be too. We often put on an audiobook while we are in the car when I pick them up from school, and I cannot wait to put this on for them.
An easy five stars from me. I’d just like to say that part of the reason I don’t listen to audiio fiction books is that so often the voice of the narrator just isn’t right for the story or has an irritating voice - quite the opposite in this case. The narrator is perfect for the story beautiful Scottish accent and beautifully read. She definitely enhanced the book in my opinion.
My thanks to the author, the publishers and NetGalley for an advanced audio copy of this charming book.
