Win a Sarah Lean Book Collection

The Forever WhaleThe bestselling author of A Dog Called Homeless, Sarah Lean will release yet another touching and thoughtful book on 4th July 2013.

The Forever Whale tells the story of Hannah who, like many young girls, adores her Grandad. Sadly her Grandad has Alzheimer’s and he’s always forgetting things. He keeps trying to tell Hannah a story about a whale, and it seems really important, but it’s all jumbled up. Then Grandad has a stroke and he can’t remember anything, not even Hannah. It’s like he’s lost inside himself. Determined to get Grandad back, Hannah sets out to make a film that will remind him of his life – and in doing so starts to piece together and extraordinary story about a whale that connects Grandad’s childhood with her own.

    I wasn’t interested in learning to read until I came across chicken Licken. My Mum refused to read it anymore and so I learnt to read. Haven’t stopped reading since
