Product Description

Details

Harris the puffin is lonely and at a loose end. He sets out travelling, looking for adventure and meets a lost baby seal. Harris bravely helps his new young companion, but they run into trouble. Then a happy crowd of Scottish sea life pitches in: an eiderduck, a dolphin, otters and some fish. And there are more new friends to come ...


Lynne Rickards' rollicking rhymes are matched by the verve and character of Gabby Grant's loveable illustrations.


Set in Scotland on the Isle of May.


From the team who brought you Lewis Clowns Around.

Press Reviews

'The book is written in rhyming couplets by Lynne Rickards and is delightfully illustrated by Gabby Grant.'


-- Lothian Life


'The book is melodic to read, with lively, colourful pictures... It is a happy book with a strong humorous vein. This would be a good 'read aloud' book, but also a moderate reader could enjoy learning the words and phrases helped by the rhythmic text.'


-- Armadillo Magazine


'The animals are charming and the pathos of the baby seal gives quite an emotional tug. A light airy touch with colour allows the sense of space and fresh sea breezes through.'


-- Books for Keeps


'You could spend hours poring over the illustrations alone in this book, as it is full of superb pictures giving us a bird's-eye view of landscapes and stunning shorelines and seascapes. The enormous attention to detail in the portrayal of all the different birds and animals means we have a real feast for the eye here.'


-- The School Librarian


'Written in a lovely rich rhyme, this is a delightful story, with a gentle underpinning message about how, through helping others, we can often help ourselves. Bright colourful illustrations add warmth and gentleness to a lovely tale. This picture book is particularly suitable for reading aloud and sharing together.'


-- Carousel


'A sweet picture book, especially for children who love puffins and birds.'


--Youth Services Book Review


'Lynne Rickards and Gabby Grant make the concept of helping others fun and palpable for preschoolers and elementary school age children!'
