Little Whale snuck out onto land to play and is trapped in the grass. Fifi and Choby are trying to help Little Whale find its way home. With the assistance of some birds, they send a message to Momma Whale, who arrives and tells them that they’ll be able to return to the ocean when the wind blows and turns the grassland into the sea.
Fifi and Choby are invited for some snacks at the whales’ home. But how will they get into the sea?
Momma Whale reassures them that all they need to do is pretend to be fish…
Bei Lynn enjoys exploring the creative realm with images and words. Her picture books present a delightful fusion of fantasy and reality. She relishes in uncovering the magic hidden amongst ordinary things, such as the blossoming of a flower or a hatchling breaking out of an egg.
Among Bei Lynn’s most notable publications are To Be A Fish, FeiFei and Curly, and Kata Kata Kata.
Her works have been recognized by various awards and honors, including Hsin-Yi Children Literature Award, China Times Best Children’s Book of the Year, Taipei Public Library Best Children’s Book, and the Best Chinese Children’s Picture Book of Feng Zikai Chinese Children’s Book Award. Though not as bouncy as the frog character Bei Lynn herself has created, She hopes that the pen in her hand would never stop dashing across pages with the same exuberance even as she ages.
