A wonderful tale of a beautiful Selkie cleverly told in verse. With twists and turns to keep you guessing and moments of both sadness and hope, this marvellous story will appeal to both youngsters and adults alike. The illustrations are fabulous too and a perfect match for the story.
Highly recommended. I loved it!
