Whale in a Fishbowl

R 99.00

A moving, poetic story about a whale in captivity who longs for the ocean . . . because whales don't belong in fishbowls, do they?

Wednesday is a whale who lives in a fishbowl smack dab in the middle of a city--it's the only home she's ever known.

Cars whizz around her and people hurry past; even the sun and moon circle above. But if she leaps high enough out of her bowl, Wednesday can see it: a calm bit of blue off in the distance.

When a girl in a paisley dress tells Wednesday "You belong in the sea," the whale starts to wonder, what is the sea?

Readers will cheer--and get all choked up-- when, one day, Wednesday leaps higher than ever before and sets in motion a breathtaking chain of events that will carry her to her rightful home.

Touching, and ultimately uplifting, here is a story about a lonely creature longing to be free--and longing to find someone just like her.
