Description

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. Sail away on a quest to help Ned find his courage and discover the truth behind the mysterious Kingdom of Spies. Flossy and Boo bring you their curiously spellbinding brand of storytelling.
