HASH(0xa0c800c0) out of 5 stars Lovely Illustrations, But Buy It New Jan. 7 2015
By Soaring Claws - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought a used copy. The book that I received was a previous library edition and was a bit more banged up than I expected. However, the story itself was lovely and the illustrations were even more beautiful than I had expected. The cover image doesn't do justice to the rest of the book which has a watercolor-ish art style (I don't really know art well enough to describe style or technique accurately, but it's pretty).

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

HASH(0xa0d9ce1c) 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!!
