Sammy the Seal
Ben Cropp

Few things appeal more to children – or to adults for that matter – than young animals, & no young animal could be more appealing than Sammy the Seal.
He begins his life in a seal rookery off the coast of New South Wales, where every day is a round of fishing , frolicking, basking in the sun, & sleeping. But Sammy is no ordinary seal, for him even the seaweed, the rocks & the crabs under the water are exciting, & chasing fish is an adventure.
With his love of exploring & his inquisitiveness he sometimes gets more than he bargained for. Twice he narrowly misses being caught by sharks, & once he wanders so far that he loses his way. Eventually he blunders into the net of an aquarium owner who takes him away. At first the young seal resent captivity, but gradually he learns to love the small children who visit him every day & to revel in the applause of the crowd as he performs his tricks.
Well illustrated & delightfully written this children’s book combines scientific fact & fantasy, so that Sammy is not only a lovable little creature, he is almost a human being.
