Why did Ola the Orca swim alone? is Book 4 in the Sasha and Friends series and is a story about friendship and community support after emotional loss. Ola the Orca once led a wonderful life with her female pod, enjoying the freedom of migration and the safety of being in a group. But one day her world was turned upside down when her entire pod was captured by a fishing trawler which Ola managed to escape. Scared and alone, Ola seeks refuge in the bay where she has always felt safe, and learns to live without her pod by her side. This is a beautiful story about adaptation and acceptance of difference and that being different doesn't matter when it comes to true friendship.
