See What a Seal Can Do

Publisher: Walker

Walker add another title to their excellent nature series with this stunning picture book that follows a day in the life of a grey seal.

Readers would be forgiven for thinking that seals are lazy animals that sunbathe on the beach all day, but a dangerous journey down to the icy depths of the ocean show what a seal has to go through to find some dinner. Extra facts about the seals clever features – super sonic hearing, whiskers that alert them to danger and a duvet-like layer of fat – add extra details to the simple narrative of the seals mission.

The artwork is absolutely beautiful and perfectly captures the adorable nature of these strange creatures. The beach scenes are particularly spectacular and the colours throughout are glorious. Young artists and animal lovers alike will be enchanted by this very pretty and very informative book.
