“Oh to be a Selkie 

and live between two worlds

half your days spent as a seal, 

and the other half, a girl…”

Stories about the selkie have been told for hundreds of years by those who live near the North Atlantic and the North Sea. 

Sometimes called “seal folk,” the selkie, as humans, are tall and strong with dark hair and eyes. Extremely private, they keep their seal coats hidden away until they get restless and are called to the sea, and take on their seal forms.

In her lyrical follow-up to She Dreams of Sable Island, artist and author Briana Corr Scott explores the Selkie legend in a book of short, whimsical poems. 

Find out what Selkie likes to eat, where she lives, how she spends her time on land and in the sea, and learn a Selkie lullaby. Lilting and lyrical, with acrylic paintings that recall the ocean's depths, this magical book is ideal for both bedtime and playtime. 

Features a paper doll, clothes, and seal with the book.
