A little girl and a young seal pup are separated from their families after a devastating storm. While the child is searching for a place to call home, she is befriended by the seal pup.
There begins an enchanting friendship, as the child and seal cross the sea, for many days and for many nights. Through harsh weather and through kind weather, they keep each other warm and safe. The daunting task of finding their families again is not quite so scary when they are together.
Beautiful watercolor illustrations capture the drama of the sea and sky, creating a perfect backdrop to the story of hope and resilience.
