Book offer for schools






My name is Joy Ramirez and I’m the author of ‘Toot – The World’s Tiniest Whale’

This charming New Zealand children’s picture book is about perseverance and has a great positive message for students. 

NZ Herald Canvas gave the book an excellent review.

‘Toot might be a tiddler of a whale but he proves he has a big heart in this heartwarming rhyming story of his quest to find the sea. While he enjoys life in a goldfish bowl with his goldfish chum Henry the Fifth, Toot hankers for the wide open ocean and decides to make a swim for it using champagne glasses, soup bowls and dog bowls as stepping stones in a bid for freedom. Great word play and delightful illustrations by Mike Chapman.’

‘The students really loved the story and I think it resonated in their writing. The assembly writing was about Toot, and they sponged their own ‘Toots’ to show.'
