The Unexpected Visitor, Paperback Book


A stunningly beautiful and warm-hearted picture book all about the friendship between a fisherman and whale. There was once a little fisherman. Every morning he would take his boat out into the wide sea . . . And wait, and waitWhen the little fisherman gets an unexpected (and very large) visitor one day, they instantly become friends.

They have a lot of fun exploring each other's homes, but where have all the fishes gone?This picture book is the perfect way to introduce the notion of sharing, sustainability and taking care of the creatures in our oceans with young children ages 3 years and up. Both boys and girls will love this timeless picture book, similar to Benji Davies' The Storm Whale, with exquisite and serene artwork from new talent Jessica Courtney-Tickle. Jessica Courtney-Tickle graduated from Kingston University in July 2014 where she studied Illustration and animation and found a specialism in children's picture books.

She loves working with colour, texture and lots and lots of characters.
