The Star Whale


Nicola Davies


Discover a pangolin at dusk, fly on the bat’s back, visit a lion and hear about his plight; try the moth alphabet tongue-twister, meet fighting Tazzies on a night out in Tasmania or dream about the five-legged dog and three-legged cat! Then find out about real, huge Titanosaurus and amazing Coelacanths. You might spot a kingfisher, that ‘small glint of wonder’, and see how ‘wild reclaims the world’ in the urban night-time. These beautiful poems are perfectly melded with Petr Horacek’s gorgeous, glowing paintings and the combination is extraordinary – passionate, playful, thoughtful and exciting.

Like the goldfinch in the final poem, this wonderful book will ‘set the heart free and flying’.
