Why the Whales Came

We were proud to work with Michael Morpurgo on two of his great books including KENSUKE'S KINGDOM.

In WHY THE WHALES CAME, Gracie and her friend Daniel live on the Isles of Scilly. They love playing on the beach but they have been warned to keep away from the mysterious person the villagers call the Birdman. When the children get stranded on the abandoned island of Samson, only the Birdman can explain the real reason for the curse that has troubled the islanders - and now Grace and Daniel are caught up in an adventure that will prove the most testing and exciting time of their lives!

Children's theatre from the master of children's writing!
