One November morning, when the hills are hump-backed with sw, Laurie and Leo decide to build a sw whale. As they shovel, and pat and polish to bring the sw whale out of the hill, the whale gradually takes on a life of its own. Caroline Pitcher's tale of a brother and sister, and of the dreams their sw whale inspires is beautifully portrayed by Jackie Morris.
Caroline Pitcher's story Kevin the Blue won the Independent Story of the Year Award in 1993. Caroline's first book for Frances Lincoln was The Snow Whale with Jackie Morris, chosen as one of Child Education's Best Books of 1996 and shortlisted for the 1997 Children's Book Award. Jackie Morris lives in Pembrokeshire, Wales, with children, dogs and cats. Ever since leaving college, Bath Academy of Art, at least one cat has watched over her while she works. Big cats and small are a passion in her life, and it was while reading and watching her cat Pixie sleeping in winter that the idea for I am Cat came about.
