Oxford Reading Tree TreeTops Greatest Stories: Oxford Level 9: Sea Stories Synopsis

The sea is a powerful force of nature; once the salt gets into your blood it is hard to return to land. When a selkie is trapped in her maiden form by a lovestruck human, she pines for her seal-skin and the embrace of the waves. Her family may be on land, but her heart is with the sea. But not everyone is destined to live underwater ... Can Sylvie and her brother escape the watery clutches of Merman Rosmer? TreeTops Greatest Stories offers children some of the worlds best-loved tales in a collection of timeless classics. Top children's authors and talented illustrators work together to bring to life our literary heritage for a new generation, engaging and delighting children. The books are carefully levelled, making it easy to match every child to the right book. Each book contains inside cover notes to help children explore the content, supporting their reading development. Teaching notes on Oxford Owl offer cross-curricular links and activities to support guided reading, writing, speaking and listening.
