Product description

Long ago, at the very dawn of time, there was a whale who ate fishes. He ate the starfish and the garfish, and the crab and the dab, and the plaice and the dace, and the skate and his mate, and the mackereel and the pickereel, and the really truly twirly-whirly eel. But what happened when he made the mistake of eating a man? Rudyard Kipling’s timeless fable, retold in this young edition, draws on Indian and African folklore to tell a story that sweeps readers back into the primal world. Bringing a burst of exotic flavour into the classroom, and shimmering with unusual, comical language for little tongues to wrap themselves around, it is both a fabulous story and a fresh, imaginative way to get children thinking about the origins, forms and uses of things.
