See What a Seal Can Do

author: Chris Butterworth
illustrator: Kate Nelms

On the shore, a seal looks like a slow, dozy creature that spends its time lazing around or flumping along the sand. But underwater, itís a different story. Splash! Seal dives deep, with a body just the right shape to shoot through the water and power down with his back flippers. He slips through a seaweed forest, and ó sensing a predator nearby ó dives even deeper to stay safe. Finally itís time to make a sudden twist and turn to catch his fishy dinner. Merging a lyrical narrative sprinkled with fascinating facts and aww-inspiring illustrations, here is one nature adventure thatís hard to resist.
Back matter includes an index.

Follow a gray seal on a journey from sand to sea in an engaging, richly illustrated story with surefire kid appeal.
