The Selkie Girl by Janis Mackay


'"You stole my seal skin!"
Fergus stared at her. Could it be true? He had heard the stories of selkies - magical seals that could take off their seal skins and change into humans.
"Stay!" he blurted out, the seal skin clutched behind his back. "Be my friend!"'

This is a lovely retelling of the traditional Scottish folk tale of the selkie, adapted for a young audience. Beautifully written by writer and storyteller Janis Mackay, the tale is accompanied by Ruchi Mhasane's stunning illustrations.
