The Seal Children

By Jackie Morris
Illustrated by Jackie Morris

A magical Selkie story, written and illustrated by Jackie Morris.

When a fisherman falls in love with a selkie - half-woman, half-seal - she gives him her sealskin as a sign of her love, and bears him two children, Ffion and Morlo, before returning to her own people. When a stranger comes to the village, telling of a land far away, the children remember their mother's stories of the cities of gold and pearls beneath the waves... This is a haunting story of love and freedom, for all ages.

  • Beautiful cloth-bound hardback reissue of this classic story - the first picture book written and illustrated by Jackie Morris.
  • A gift for Jackie Morris fans of all ages with stunning illustrations and lyrical text.
  • Winner of the Tir Na N-og Award.
