"If you're down by the sea one day, you might spot a seal, lying around like a fat sunbather or flumping along the sand." Lyrical, descriptive language and appealing mixed media illustrations highlight the characteristics and behavior of gray seals. Diving deep, catching mackerel, evading a killer whale on the hunt, and returning to the beach to sleep are some of the events in one gray seal's day. While a large-font narrative tracks the seal's activities, offset single sentences in a smaller italicized type add snippets of relevant factual information. (Ages 4-8)
