Product Description:

A boy watches as a baby seal is born on the rocks near his home and from that moment a special friendship is created between them. Despite his disability, the boy is a keen surfer and he enjoys many afternoons surfing with the seals. One day in some very rough seas, the young seal saves his life.

Review:

This tale of a very special friendship between a young boy and a seal is accompanied by Michael Foreman's atmospheric and evocative illustrations. The young boy is present when the young seal pup is born and as the seasons pass he watches it grow. When summer comes around and the boy goes surfing, he is delighted when his seal friend joins in. When the seal saves his life, their bond becomes unbreakable and as the two grow older, their friendship is maintained. This is a touching and timeless story in which the power of the sea and the power of friendship are portrayed strongly in both the text and the illustrations. Seal Surfer was highly commended for the NASEN Children's Book Award for 1996. -- Philippa Reece
