About this title

Synopsis:

An exquisite new story to delight readers young and old, from a much-loved writer and illustrator.

Deluxe slipcased collector’s edition, featuring a beautifully illustrated hardback book and a stunning print by Judith Kerr.

What do you do if you find an abandoned seal pup on a rock in the middle of the sea? Well, take it home with you to your flat, of course.

At least that’s what Mr Albert Cleghorn thought, though perhaps he hadn’t considered all the complications...

This is the story of what then happened to Mr Cleghorn and Charlie the seal in their determination to find a home for Charlie and, incidentally, happiness for them both.

Sometimes funny, sometimes sad, Mister Cleghorn’s Seal is a classic in the making from the inimitable Judith Kerr.

About the Author:

Judith Kerr was born in Berlin, the daughter of a distinguished German writer. She left Germany with her family in 1933 to escape from the Nazis and they arrived in England in 1936, having spent the intervening years in Switzerland and France.
She was married to the writer Nigel Kneale. Their daughter Tacy is an artist, and their son Matthew is an acclaimed
novelist.

In 2012, Judith was awarded an OBE for her services to children’s literature and Holocaust education.
