The story uses simple words and clear descriptors of the seal, the night, people and Halifax, making it an easy to read book. The detailed images and comic book style layout will catch the attention of older readers as well. Canadian Teacher Magazine book review, May issue, 2017


Use this book to introduce students to the coastal systems of Canada or inspire an interest in ecosystems. Better yet combine a read aloud of this text with listening or learning the song “British Columbia” by Judith Drynan and Margaret Drynan. This book might also be used as an excellent resource for environment projects in the classroom. This is a great resource to use as a stand alone or interdisciplinary text. Canadian Teacher Magazine book review, May issue, 2017
