The Whale Who Wanted More


Average rating

4 out 5

44 reviews

Under glittering waves of a vast ocean blue, a beautiful world is hidden from view. And there, in the cool and the quiet of the deep, a great, gentle giant was stirring from sleep . . . Humphrey the whale is on a quest: to find the one perfect object that will make him feel complete. He roams far and wide, gathering endless undersea treasure as he goes. Yet, no matter how many goodies he accumulates, Humphrey still doesn’t feel content. Could it be friendship, not possessions, that will really make Humphrey’s heart sing?

I think this book shows about an whale that wants more of things all the time.

I like this book very much because it reminds me of my holidays in Ireland. I read this book in a bookshop in Kilkenny. I would recommend to my classmates because I like whales.

This was a really tricky book to read but it was very interesting.

It is a story about friendship with a happy ending and that it is better to share with people than keeping things to yourself. I liked the whale the best. it got me thinking about how it is good to act towards other people. I would recommend it to someone else.

Prince Cornetto Pineapple 18.08.2021


I liked this story. It is about a whale who learned a lesson, that he didn’t need to take lots of things because he already had what he needed to be happy.

I didn’t like when the crab shouted to him. I liked the whale the best.

Master Aardvark Windchime 14.08.2021


I Loved this story. Such a nice story with a great meaning behind it.

There were some difficult words. That is why I only gave it 4 stars. But I did like the story and it told us that you don’t need lots and lots of stuff to feel filled up and whole because we all just need so little to have enough. The pictures were great.
