Steven Seagull Action Hero by Elys Dolan
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

This very funny picture book works on a number of different levels. Children will love the characters: renegade seagull cop Steve; his sidekick Mac, a goldfish in a bowl (though complete with police badge); Lola the glamorous hippo lifeguard. They’ll also love being able to solve the crime before the cops – sharp eyes will spot that it’s the crabs who are sneakily stealing the sand. Adults will laugh at Steven Seagull, at the cop-buddy film spoofs and – those of a certain age anyway – will pick up the odd Baywatch reference! It’s all great fun and the pages are full of extra comic details that will keep everyone smiling. ~ Andrea Reece

About the Author

Elys Dolan

Elys Dolan grew up in a part of Sussex that consists almost entirely of trees and cows and she was named after a department store in Wimbledon. She's never let either of these things hold her back and Elys recently graduated with distinction from the MA in Children's Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art. Elys has been awarded second place in the Macmillan Prize and was also shortlisted for the Waterstone's ‘Picture This’ prize. Elys works predominately with ink, newfangled digital witchcraft and coloured pencils of which she is the proud owner of 178 but can never seem to find a sharpener. Based in Cambridge, when Elys is not drawing she grows cacti, collects pocket watches and spends altogether too much time in the company of other illustrators.
