Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 4. A special bond develops between a boy and a seal pup through the years. From storm-tossed winter waves to quiet harbor nights, dramatic watercolors capture the changing moods of the sea.
Copyright 1997 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Booklist

Ages 5^-9. Ben and his grandfather form a bond with a seal pup and its mother after they witness the birth of the pup. They watch the animals through the seasons, worrying about them in the winter storms and eventually, Ben and the pup learn to play together in the surf. The story's interest lies almost entirely in the pictures, which are large, dramatic, and intensely colored in the greens and blues of the sea. Although Ben's disability is never mentioned in the text, the illustrations show Ben with crutches, a wheelchair, or a special surfboard that ties to his waist. A farfetched rescue by the seal and a disconcerting shift of viewpoint from human to seal weaken the book, but the animal-child friendship, along with a sensitive portrayal of a disabled boy, tips the balance in favor of purchase. Susan Dove Lempke --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
Seal surfer is a story of a young boy and his friend, a seal. It contains themes of birth, life and death, and the enjoyment of time spent in nature and with animals. The artwork is gorgeous, especially the color and water views. The language is very descriptive and very sensitive. My four year old boy loved it!

A boy and a seal pup strike up an extraordinary friendship that spans decades and sees them both through various stages and relationships in their lives. Fun activities like surfing and fishing are explored and present an active an independent depiction of a boy with a physical disability. My five year old nephew loved it and so did I!
