With illustrations by Hermione Skrine

George grows up in a Catholic orphanage but is woken every morning by the Imam calling the faithful to prayer. Rebelling against the nuns, it is the orphanage gardener who helps him make sense of the religious differences that surround him. An encounter with Sabu, a dolphin, will change things for ever.

“Charming and full of wisdom...it went some way towards explaining some things that I’ve never been able to, or even tried to grasp.”

Chris Stewart
author of Driving over Lemons

“It’s a delightful book, both a modern parable and an exploration of faith, existence and co-existence.”

Kevin McCloud
TV presenter and author

Sabu's author, Robin Witt, first started making notes after leaving boarding school to work as a “jackaroo” on an Australian sheep station more than 30 years ago. The silence and vastness of the night sky set his mind to thinking about the important issues dealt with by the book. He has had a lifelong interest in environmental issues and was a founder member of the Rift Valley Tree Trust, which plants trees at schools in Kenya. A proportion of the proceeds of Sabu will be donated to the Tusk Trust, a charity that works in Africa to protect wildlife, alleviate poverty, and encourage sustainable development. www.tusk.org. Robin lives in Somerset with his wife Pippa and children Sophie and Hugo.
