Selkie by Gillian McClure

Selkie by Gillian McClureBook Type: Children's literature
Author: Gillian McClure
Pages: 32

Peter is curious about the legend of the selkie, a seal who can turn into a girl. When his curiosity gets the better of him, he discovers that the selkie is more than just a legend-she is a friend.

My Review:

Amazing pictures and beautiful words; that is what a true children’s book is made of. This book was imaginative and beautiful, and teaches children that money is not the only riches someone can posses. This wisdom of the sea is an even greater treasure, which is what this book was all about! Although this selkie legend was not quite like the original, it was still a well written story that both adults and children will love. Not only is the story captivating, but there is amazing artwork within these pages that a lover of selkie stories will enjoy. The colors and images are very rich with life, and as soon as I was done reading the words on the page, I would stare at the beautiful pictures of the selkies, which were absolutely perfect! The only thing I would say was that this book was written in a more juvenile style since it is aimed for children’s attention. However, this is still a book that people who love sea folklore, selkies or mermaids will enjoy. I give this book (****) 4 stars.
