The Sound of Whales

Better than a seaside holiday. A mystery set on a wild Scottish island, where a lonely child, a dead man and a whale are linked by the sound of the sea. Magic rushes out from the pages like the ocean breath from a conch shell. On a remote island beach, three children make a shocking discovery. Two bodies washed up on the sand: a whale and a man. Fraser and Hayley want to solve the mystery. But sensitive Dunny (who hasn’t said a word for years) is distraught. What happened on the water just isn’t natural. Only the song of the whales can put it right…

Winner of the Times Children’s Fiction Award 2014.
