I’ve got the Blue Whale Blues

I’ve got the Blue Whale, Blue Whale Blues.

When Penguin hears Whale singing the blues, he finds out that Whale has bike trouble.  Penguin tries to help, but the bike still doesn’t work, and Whale slumps to the ocean floor.  Then along comes Turtle… and Whale wonders whether his bike is really a bike at all.

Pete’s odd fact

This book was different for a few reasons.  First of all, I made the illustrations with a kind of chunky, ramshackle collage.  This means I drew things, painted them, cut them out and stuck them on the page.  Photographs were then taken of the illustrations, and that’s what we can see in the book.

Also, I recorded an audio track that comes with the book.  I got to pretend I was some sort of rock star, playing guitar, ukulele, my knees, a bicycle bell and a kazoo.
