Whale and Hearty

In the run-up to our event with Doreen Cunningham on Saturday 3rd June, we thought we’d bring you our pick of books on whales and dolphins!

Adapting to single parenthood, Doreen followed migrating grey whales up the west coast of America with her young son, discovering all that these amazing creatures can teach us about our place in the world and our responsibilities in it.

From a sea-soaked retelling of Shakespeare’s Pericles to a whale-haunted panorama of modern Korea, from tracking orcas around the British Isles to following traces of leviathans through Renaissance art, as well as a novel told by a dolphin and the most famous whale book of all… There’s a lot to learn from all of these great titles.
