Amos is a mouse with oceangoing dreams, and Boris is a whale who is kind enough to save his life at sea: the pair become devoted friends with nothing at all in common, except good hearts and a willingness to help their fellow mammal. Amos wants so much to show his gratitude to his new friend, but it will not be until many years later, long after Boris has gone back to a life of whaling about and Amos has gone back to his life of mousing around, when the tiny mouse can find a way to rescue the great whale.

The tender yet comical tale of this friendship is recorded with charm and wit, as Caldecott-medalist William Steig brings two winning heroes to life.

Cloudstreet 25th Anniversary
This year marks the 25th anniversary of Cloudstreet, Tim Winton’s sprawling, comic epic about luck and love, fortitude and forgiveness, and the magic of the everyday. However it may never have been published had it not been for the stranger who chased after Tim with the manuscript he’d left it on a bus in Rome. Since it was first published by McPhee Gribble on 1 April 1991 Tim Winton’s award-winning novel has been reimagined as a successful play, a major TV mini-series and now an opera.
