The Imaginative Whale

An astonishing book that takes little readers beyond their own imagination.
Summary

Once upon a time there was a whale who imagined herself strolling under a colorful umbrella in winter mornings and climbing apricot trees in summer evenings. 

This was a whale that whenever sadness came for a visit, she imagined she played the double bass in an orchestra and moved to the sound of rumba, mambo and chachachá, until music soaked everything else, carrying away all sadness and suffering. 

The whale who imagined addresses topics such as tolerance, the right to be different and the power of imagination, based on a story in which a young whale imagines things that not all whales imagine. Although the other whales will see in her difference a danger, she will not renounce to her imagination which will be at the same time refuge and hope for a better world.

The book possesses an innovative interior look created through laser cut which allows to see through its pages, forming different layers as if we were at the bottom of the sea.
