Children’s Fiction Hard Cover   –  Book 4 “Sasha & Friends Series”

Author: Bonnie Misha Sleep, Illustrated by: Hayden James Bone.

Overview: Ola is an Orca who led a wonderful life with her female pod enjoying the freedom of migration and the safety of being in a group. Her world was thrown upside down when her entire pod was hauled aboard a trawler while she was swimming a little further away. She is shocked and almost caught herself but takes refuse in the bay where she has always felt safe and learns to live alone. Ola is sad and knows she will never forget or give up on finding her female pod of sisters, aunties, grandmothers and of course, her own mother.


This is a story about friendship and vital community support after emotional loss and upheaval. It is also a lovely story of assimilation and acceptance of difference and that difference doesn’t matter when there is true friendship.
