Dear Greenpeace

(1 reviews with an average rating of 4 out of 5)

Publisher: Walker Books Ltd

Emily has a whale living in her garden pond, so she writes letters to Greenpeace for information about him. Each reply from Greenpeace is helpful, yet insistent that there can't possibly be a whale in her garden.

Meanwhile, Emily's relationship with her whale 'Arthur' grows. She salts the water for him and feeds him cornflakes and breadcrumbs.

When Greenpeace say whales are migratory, Arthur returns to travelling the oceans. Fortunately, Emily gets to meet him again when she visits the seaside.

A simple, warm hearted and humorous book with charming illustrations.  The correspondence could spark ideas for letter writing in the classroom setting.
