Book Description

March 24 2009
When a fisherman called Huw falls in love with a selkie - half-woman, half-seal - she gives him her sealskin as a sign of her love. She bears him two children, Ffion and Morlo, before returning to her own people. A few years later a stranger comes to the village, telling of a land far away, and Ffion and Morlo remember their mother's stories of the glittering cities underwater. Will they be able to find those places, and their mother? This lovely, lyrical story of love and freedomwas inspired by Welsh myth and a real deserted village in west Wales.

I bought this book for my daughter, and I know she is just going to love it. Jackie Morris's stunning illustrations really bring this tale to life. It's something a bit different from the usual fairytales.

5.0 out of 5 stars Selkie tale of beauty and depth Oct. 1 2006
By A. Lake - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Upon opening the package for this book I was struck with how absolutely gorgeous the illustrations were. The story was even better, a lyrical, almost poetic tale of love, separation and hope. Any fan of selkie legends or excellent Childrens books, would do well to have a copy for themselves!!
