The magical tail of Ned and the Whale begins a little like this...
With buckles and swash this story’s awash
with a mysterious odour of fish
Though sharp as a pin, Ned’s courage was thin
For his sister was terribly mean
she spouted great lies -
“a kingdom of spies,
will steal you and harvest your spleen!”
A fishy tail of magic and adventure, Ned and the Whale will scoop you up and sail you away on a quest to help Ned find his courage, and discover the truth behind the mysterious Kingdom of Spies…
Encounter strange lands, dodge the incredibly smelly Trotwood twins, soar the sky with the Clackerjacks and jump feet first into this magical, musical journey of a boy and his whale.
