Synopsis

Synopsis

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

On the shore, a seal looks like a slow, dozy creature that spends its time lazing around or flumping along the sand. But underwater, it’s 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 — sensing a predator nearby — dives even deeper to stay safe. Finally it’s 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 that’s hard to resist.
Back matter includes an index.

'See What a Seal Can Do' is almost as good as swimming alongside a friendly seal, and you won’t have to put on a wet suit.
—The New York Times Online

The beautifully colored, full-spread illustrations portray the seal’s transformation from awkward land dweller to sinuous and powerful denizen of the deep. The below-water scenes masterfully evoke the murky ocean habitat and the singular seal’s steep descent to the bottom. From the irresistible cover to the closing "super-swimming underwater wonder," the book will encourage readers to dive right in and see what a seal can do.
—School Library Journal (starred review)
