Harris the Hero
A Puffin's Adventure
“Where do you live, little seal?” Harris said.
“I live on an island with one rocky head. But now I cant find it. Which way should I go?”
Well, Harris looked round, and then answered, “I know!”
Harris the puffin wants adventure and fun and maybe a new friend. But what he finds is a baby seal who needs his help
'The book is written in rhyming couplets by Lynne Rickards and is delightfully illustrated by Gabby Grant.'
-- Lothian Life
'The book is melodic to read, with lively, colourful pictures... It is a happy book with a strong humorous vein. This would be a good 'read aloud' book, but also a moderate reader could enjoy learning the words and phrases helped by the rhythmic text.'
-- Armadillo Magazine
'The animals are charming and the pathos of the baby seal gives quite an emotional tug. A light airy touch with colour allows the sense of space and fresh sea breezes through.'
-- Books for Keeps
'You could spend hours poring over the illustrations alone in this book, as it is full of superb pictures giving us a bird's-eye view of landscapes and stunning shorelines and seascapes. The enormous attention to detail in the portrayal of all the different birds and animals means we have a real feast for the eye here.'
-- The School Librarian
'Written in a lovely rich rhyme, this is a delightful story, with a gentle underpinning message about how, through helping others, we can often help ourselves. Bright colourful illustrations add warmth and gentleness to a lovely tale. This picture book is particularly suitable for reading aloud and sharing together.'
'A sweet picture book, especially for children who love puffins and birds.'
--Youth Services Book Review
'Lynne Rickards and Gabby Grant make the concept of helping others fun and palpable for preschoolers and elementary school age children!'
