Whisper on the Wind

Claire Saxby

This is the wind  that carries the whisper from Ren’s dream.   

This is the sailor, long at sea, who catches it.   

The multi-award-winning duo behind Iceberg returns!

With its lyrical, cumulative text and whimsical, richly imagined artwork, Whisper on the Wind is a celebration of the wonders of the ocean and the power of love to find us - wherever we are.


Dreams and breezes and moonbeams introduce us to a sleeping child, Ren, safe in her lighthouse home. As she sleeps, a whisper from her dream is carried by the wind across an aquatic dreamscape filled with underwater creatures and a swirling sea, lyrically described in cumulative text that is complemented with lively illustrations.

Meanwhile, a sailor is being guided by the lighthouse beam – or is it a child’s dream? As the day dawns, Ren happily greets it with her mother safely back home.

Whisper on the Wind has a lovely poetic sensibility that makes for a melodic read aloud. This is childhood magic for ages 2+.
