The wind whips up, the waves grow big and raindrops start to fall. Noah has to leave his seal on the sand. “Do you think my seal will be all right?” Noah asks. Nana peeks out from under the tarpaulin. “Goodness!” she cries. “It looks like a real seal.” “It is a real seal,” says Noah, proudly.

A story about imagination, the thrill of adventure, and discovering wonder in the world all around us.

Noah’s Seal

Waiting is hard. In a gentle multigenerational story that blurs the boundaries of real and imagined, Noah waits on the beach while Nana fixes their sailboat. The boat will take them out to sea where the seals live, and Noah can hardly contain himself. While he waits, he sculpts his own seal out of sand… Later, he wonders: did his seal swim away? Readers will delight in pondering the mystery too, in this sun-splashed book for young adventurers - an essential summer read.
