A Seal Pup Called Pearl

The thirteenth in a fantastic series of animal stories for younger readers by Waterstones Children’s Book Prize-shortlisted author Helen Peters, with beautiful black-and-white illustrations by Ellie Snowdon.

Jasmine’s dad is a farmer, and her mum is a large-animal vet, so Jasmine spends a lot of time caring for animals and keeping them out of trouble. Unfortunately, this often means she gets into hot water herself…

When a newborn seal pup is abandoned on the riverbank, Jasmine and Tom are determined to care for her until she’s old enough to be released. But there are other dangers for baby seals, and when Pearl’s life is threatened again, nobody knows what the future will hold. Will Pearl ever be able to return to the sea?

Brilliant storytelling that will make you laugh and cry, this is Dick King-Smith for a new generation. Perfect for readers aged seven and up.
