Far beneath the beautiful sea, a unique whale sings a song that is all his own. Inspired by the incredible true story of the 52 Hz whale, this lyrical tale of loneliness and individuality will delight readers of all ages.

Told in short, poetic passages, this whale, simply known as 52, celebrates the joy of life he's found beneath the ocean waves. But, there is just one small problem… no other whale can hear him sing!

Yet, despite this hardship, 52 remains optimistic, introducing us to the magic and the beauty of his own invisible world.

Let us read to you!
