A look at the biggest creature that has ever lived on earth will inspire an abiding fascination with this mysterious, magnificent marine animal.
Nicola Davies says, "Now there is so much man-made noise in the ocean that the blue whales are having trouble hearing one another. Unlike humpbacks, their booming hums are infrequent, so it is always exciting when we locate one."
Nick Maland says, "I have illustrated for newspapers and magazines over the years, but it was not until my daughter was born that
I turned to children's books!"

For its 10th anniversary, the festival celebrates those who have dared to stand ‘on the edge,’ risking their careers, and sometimes their lives, to speak out for their art and beliefs. Join us for a wide range of events, including debates, one-on-one conversations, participatory workshops and performances in venues throughout the city.
