The Whale


A giant hoax or not? This story of adventure and determination is powerfully illustrated – ripe for setting and recount writing.


This is a story of adventure and determination through the power of illustration. The original graphite drawings capture the beauty and drama of the ocean and one of its largest inhabitants- the whale. Pupils will use some of the illustrations from the vehicle text to write their own setting descriptions and create newspaper reports detailing the sighting of a marine mammal.
