This 24-page comic zine tells a wee Selkie adventure!

Based on the Selkie legends from Scottish (and Irish) folktales, this digitally printed CD-size booklet contains a beautiful story with playful images about a little Selkie girl and her seal companion.

Apart from the title, there are no words, so it is adaptable for all languages, ages and reading abilities. It's the perfect booklet for story-time, aswell as a must-have for Celtic Folklore enthusiasts, marine biologists and people who like swimming with seals!

The images were assembled digitally, using backgrounds I made specially in stone lithography and figures drawn by hand with my trusty Lamy fountain pen. The book is digitally printed on recycled white paper and measures 12x12cm, like a CD booklet, staple-bound with rounded corners.

This little book is absolutely STUNNING. It's such a sweet and beautiful wordless story, and I'm an absolute sucker for selkies anyway, so this was right up my alley. It's even prettier than I expected, and I'm so glad to own it. This little treasure is now prominently displayed on my bookshelf. Catherine is a sweetheart and answered my questions promptly and cheerily. Also, the UK-US shipping process was quick and painless. I will be ordering from her again in the future!

A light-hearted wordless story, wonderfully dreamy in all its silent blueness. It reverses the typical selkie tale of a selkie becoming human. I especially liked the pages where more than one moment of time is captured within one scene, instead of each moment having a panel to itself. And I love the rubber stamp/potato print/? jellyfish. I also like that the book has rounded corners. Delighted.
