Saving Seal – the Plastic Predicament


An inspiring and uplifting picture book from Diane Jackson Hill and Craig Smith, a highly acclaimed Australian author and illustrator duo. Named a Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) Book of the Year Notable in 2022 and shortlisted for the Wilderness Society’s 2022 Environmental Award for Children’s Literature. 

In a small coastal town, Lizzie and Grandpa Dave rescue a seal whose flippers have been tangled in a plastic bag.  

But how many times will their seal friend need to be rescued? And how can Lizzie and Grandpa Dave stop more plastic rubbish from clogging up their bay?

This is a story about how we can work together to make a change. It’s about making the right choices, and making them now.
