Skye the Puffling A Baby Puffin's Adventure by Lynne RickardsOne morning Skye, a cheeky baby puffin with an appetite for adventure, sneaks out of her parents' burrow, tumbles off the cliff edge and accidentally lands on a passing gannet's back! Skye's thrilling journey takes her around the Firth of Forth and finds her in a few tricky situations -- a perilous piggy-back ride, an icy dip in the sea and a host of Scottish bird life. Written in Lynne Rickards' signature rhyme, this charming coming-of-age story features dynamic watercolour illustrations of Scottish sealife and a very cute puffling! The adorable sequel to the best-selling Harris the Hero is set in Scotland around the Firth of Forth, the Isle of May, North Berwick and the Bass Rock.
'The rhyming text works well and carries the story along at the right pace. It would be particularly suitable for reading aloud. I am particularly fond of the area of Scotland surrounding the Bass Rock and thought that Jon Mitchell's watercolour illustrations really did it justice, but it is in his portrayal of Scottish sea life that these delightful illustrations really stand out. I particularly liked the attention to detail given to gannets, and Skye is just adorable!' --School Library Association 'This is a sweet picture book, especially for children who love puffins and birds.' --Youth Services Book Review'
