Zealy and Whubba Go Fishing is the third book in the Adventures of Zealy and Whubba series by Roe De Pinto. The story is about a killer whale named Whubba and a seal pup named Zealy who wants to learn how to catch fish so that she can eat and survive. She goes to her friend Whubba for help and he teaches her how to fish. Although initially she is unable to catch anything, with a bit of practice and a whole lot of perseverance, she finally succeeds in doing so, much to the delight of her friends and family.
I got this book for my niece, who absolutely loved the story! Although she had been interested primarily in the book cover, once we finished reading the book the first time round, she insisted that we go back again and reread it once more. The text is easy enough for young ones to practice reading aloud on their own or along with you, and the lovable natures of Zealy and Whubba are sure to capture both their attention and their hearts.
In addition to being beautifully illustrated with colorful backgrounds and plenty of adorable animals, I also think that this story helps teach children a very important lesson — that even skills as vital as hunting for food can take time to master and that it’s okay if you don’t get the hang of something on the first try. This series is a wonderful addition to any child’s bookcase and I encourage you to check out the other Zealy and Whubba books as well!
