Blue Whale feels blue when he has trouble riding his bike. Care-free Penguin tries to help but then Blue Whale’s bike helmet doesn’t sit right. When turtle rides into the story, Blue whale realises his bike is not a bike and his helmet is not a helmet. Thankfully he sees the funny side and all enjoy a good laugh about it – until his guitar breaks. Refreshing illustrations in gleaming watercolours and collage show there is a bright side of life to return to.
