About this book

Follow a Grey Seal on an underwater journey in this richly illustrated Nature Storybook. Lying about on the sand like a fat sunbather, Seal might seem like a slow, dozy creature - but nothing compares with his grace and speed when he's underwater! Seal can dive like a rocket and hunt like a harpoon. He can stay underwater for up to 15 minutes and dive to depths of 300 feet to find his prey. Find out all this and lots more about the super-swimming wonder in this fascinating book.

See What a Seal Can Do is a perfect introduction to the still rare but much-loved Grey Seal – one of the species most likely to be encountered on our coasts. In warm, rich language, Chris Butterworth captures the contrast between a Grey Seal's life on land and in the water. It is a debut title for Kate Nelms, a talented natural history artist with a great future ahead of her.
