The village of Makkal has a problem. Their neighbour is a formidable giant whose thundering footsteps and booming voice has them quaking in their homes.
But one day, when a fierce storm threatens to take a boy away to sea, the villagers find an unexpected friend in the giant. He even helps them with their greatest woe – collecting salt from across the sea!
Inspired by a folktale from the Philippines, Daya Subramanian’s warm narrative and Tanaya Vyas’ serene illustrations weave an empathetic tale of friendship and wonder in Why the Sea is Salty.
