The Girl, the Cat and the Navigator
Afloat on the wild waves, can Oona spot the sky whale who swims past the stars at night…? For years, pin-bright Oona has dreamed of setting sail with her father, a ship’s captain. And while he’s away on his voyages, she devours stories of a fabled beast: the Nardoo, who swims amid the moon and stars at night. So when she stows away on a whaling boat bound for the ice-caps of the North, the stage is set for an adventure full of myths and marvels. There’s a plucky girl, and a cat, and a navigator. But where is the Nardoo? Is it real? Will Oona ever find out?
