Share Article

A boy with an incredible imagination – and a habit of embellishing the truth – learns how to make new friends in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Peter and the Talking Blue Whale” by Mina Coccia.

In this charming children’s story, Peter discovers how to make new friends by telling the truth instead of creating fantastic stories.

Six-year-old Peter has an issue. Parents do not want their children to play with him because they consider his stories lies instead of a way to use his creative and ingenious imagination, so therefore he finds himself without any friends. This new children’s book explores what happens when Peter meets a friendly blue whale and how it changes his life.

“Peter and the Talking Blue Whale” shares the story of Peter and Wendy, a blue whale who can talk. From the moment they meet, the small boy and the large whale share a special connection only friendship can bring. Wendy convinces Peter, who loves to animate the truth, that the best policy is always to be honest and true. Although all the kids think he’s telling another fantastic tale when he describes his new friend, they accompany him to the pier to meet Wendy. He’s not sure if she’ll appear one last time, but when a disaster happens in the village, his wish comes true.

Child development professionals consider “imaginative play” a strong creative trait, and it helps children learn about their environment and their place in it. In this charming children’s story, Peter discovers how to make new friends by telling the truth instead of creating fantastic stories. Colorful watercolor illustrations by Richa Kinra add a whimsical element to the story, which works equally well as a read-aloud story for young readers and silent reader for slightly older children.

Coccia, who has a Ph.D. in holistic health and nutrition, works to promote well-being for children through their relationship with nature, environmental awareness and health.
