Little Cachalot is big. Big enough for a deeper dive, he thinks.
Down further and further, because that’s where all the adventure lies! He meets sea animals with razor-sharp teeth, with stringy feet and gigantic eyes. It’s really exciting, but exciting can be dangerous. Little Cachalot might be big, but the sea is still much bigger.
In Big Little Cachalot Mariken Jongman en Yoko Heilgers tell the exciting tale of Little Cachalot looking for adventure in the deep sea.
Praise for Big Little Cachalot:
‘Heiligers has once and for all proven herself a true asset to children’s literature with her second picture book Big Little Cachalot, which comes with a beautiful cover. (…) Heiligers admirably transforms these big bulky whales into graceful and expressive animals. You never get to see more than one eye or a long row of teeth, and yet the Little Cachalot’s expressions range from cheeky to worried and from anxious to cheerful.’ – Trouw
‘A work of art! With Big Litle Cachalot Jongman and Heiligers have delivered a beautiful book, in which the artwork, text and typography come together splendidly.’ – Reformatorisch Dagblad
‘A gem of a book: thrilling and full of surprises.’ – pluizer.be
