Louisa the Whale
Lynn Bedran, author
Louisa is the only whale in the Mediterranean sea, and she feels very lonely. Her only friend is Jimmy the giraffe, who lives in a nearby zoo. Can Jimmy find a way to make Louisa’s life more pleasant? This book is an ode to life and to the importance of mental health. It aims to show children that feeling lonely, or bullied, is not forever and that there is always a solution to any problem. The important thing is to look beyond what we know, and accept the help of close friends. Finding your place in life is what matters, even if it means going out of your comfort zone.
