Visit to the Whale
Author of The Hoarse Angel and Brave New Egg, Paulo Venturelli presents us with this delightful text in which desires and doubts come to light through imagination. A boy had just finished his homework when his father stepped in, saying there was a whale downtown. The news soon caught everyone’s attention. How could this be possible as they were far away from the sea? It did not take long for them to head to the city center in order to see the whale with their own eyes. With a good dose of humor and great illustrations by Nelson Cruz, Visit to the Whale is a book you can’t stop reading until the very end. The book has received the following awards: IBBY Honor List 2014 (International Board on Books for Young People); Best Book for Children and Best Illustration, 2013 – Fundação Nacional do Livro Infantil e Juvenil (FNLIJ), affiliated with IBBY; Jabuti Award 2013 (2nd place) in the category of Books for Children − Brazilian Book Chamber; Jabuti Award 2013 finalist in the category Illustration − Book for Children and Young People − Brazilian Book Chamber.
