About the Event
Story Bites Reads is our discussion based book club for readers aged 9 -12, with an interest in new middle grade fiction and who want to share and grow their ideas with others through discussion and thought-provoking activities.
We meet in the emporium on the last Sunday of the month at 3:00pm. Everyone has a copy of the book to read in advance of the session and booking is essential as we have limited spaces. The book is available the month before.
About the book:
The Lost Whale by Hannah Gold
Illustrated by Levi Pinfold
What if you could communicate with a whale? Rio has been sent to live with a grandmother he barely knows in California, while his mum is in hospital back home. Alone and adrift, the only thing that makes him smile is joining his new friend Marina on her dad's whale watching trips. That is until an incredible encounter with White Beak, a gentle giant of the sea changes everything. But when White Beak goes missing, Rio must set out on a desperate quest to find his whale and somehow save his mum. Dive into this incredible story about the connection between a boy and a whale and the bond that sets them both free.
