See What a Seal Can Do by Christine Butterworth


See What a Seal Can Do by Christine Butterworth

Lying about on the sand like a fat sunbather, seals might seem like slow, dozy creatures - but nothing compares with their grace and speed when they're underwater! Seals can dive like rockets and twist like a dancer. They can stay underwater for up to 15 minutes and dive to depths of 300 feet to find their prey. Find out all this and lots more about these super-swimming wonders in this fascinating book.


irresistible Publishers Weekly See What a Seal Can Do is almost as good as swimming alongside a friendly seal, and you won't have to put on a wet suit. New York Times online
