So begins the story of a seal pup. Separated from his herd, he must find his way through worlds of peril and spectacular beauty, to a place he has never seen. Told in poetry against breathtaking arctic landscapes, it is a tale of friendship, courage, and the wonders of home. It is based on a true story. ************************************************************************************************************************************************************** This is a sweet story about the perils of life in the ocean when youre a little seal pup.

Told in verse, the story tracks the pups adventures when he is separated from his mother during a shark attack, then swims southward in search of other seals. Along the way, he gets advice from a wise old walrus and learns to avoid the dangers which threaten his life, including a massive oil spill. The story runs more than 100 pages and is a little long for the smallest readers (under 5) but is gripping and well-told and will enthrall those in kindergarten and the early primary school years.

Its a large-sized (11-1/4 by 10-1/4 inches), hardbound book. Cutlers pastels are of very high quality and help tell the story. --Greg Langley, The Advocate (Baton Rouge) *************************************************************************************************************************************************************** Based on a true story, Thachs extended narrative poem, composed entirely of rhymed couplets, has a pleasant lilt and an unfaltering rhythm. Thachs text is superimposed on Cutlers sprawling paintings...The author adds dashes of humor to the verse [which] is likely to be tackled over multiple readings.

Ages 6-12. --Publishers Weekly Select
