A boy and his grandfather watch as a baby seal is born on the rocks near their home and from that day a special friendship is created between them. Despite his disability, the boy is a keen surfer, and he enjoys many afternoons surfing with the seals. One day, however, he gets into trouble in rough seas, and the young seal saves him. Their friendship brings happiness and meaning at the important stages of the boy's life.



I liked that the seal kept coming back to see the boy. I also liked the seal saved the boy when he fell off his surf board.

I loved this book because the people were respectful in helping the seals and not being super close to them. I was really sad when the mummy seal died, but I thought it was lovely that the baby seal lived and went on to have her own seal pup.

It was good. I really enjoy the sea and that's why I liked it.

This book is a nice story about friendship. It is a fictional book. I liked the grandad best, because if he hadn't of taken the boy to the beach, then they would of never met the mummy seal and her pup. I loved the pictures in the book. It's good that there is a disabled person, but it is just normal. I think my friends would like this book.

This book I needed help with as it was a long story. But I really enjoyed reading it and learning about the animals in the sea. I really want to try surfing.

A boy and his grandfather watch as a baby seal is born on the rocks near their home, and from that day a special friendship is forged between them. This powerful book demonstrates friendship flourishing across generations, species and abilities.
