Format: Paperback
One stormy night the sea thing child is washed up upon a lonely shore. Feeling lost and afraid of the sea, he makes himself a shelter in which to huddle down. As he grows up he ventures into the world and makes friends with other creatures in this world. However, he realises that the sea and world are things to explore - an adventure awaits him. Eventually he finds his wings and leaves his sandy shore and friends behind to find out who he really is. That is where the story leaves the reader who is left with their own imaginings - the tone is upbeat and it is easy to imagine the Sea Thing Child embarking on wonderful happy adventures. The book can be used as a simple picture book story or on a deeper level to help explain that the scary things in life are sometimes the things we most need to face up to. Beautiful emotional illustrations help to draw the reader into this world of storms and high waves into which the Sea Thing Child bravely sets off.

Format: Paperback
this book affected me very deeply, although it did not have the same effect on my 6-year-old. I would strongly recommend it to anyone embarking on a voyage of self-discovery - the themes of the therapeutic exploration are all there, and the various characters (the confused, tearful crab who senses his need for self-expression but is frightened to explore it; the rather get-on-with-it/none-of-this-emotional-nonsense albatross; the earth-motherish (or, rather, sea-motherish), positive, trusting-in-nature eel) simply, subtly and yet powerfully illustrate the issues facing all human beings. I was thoroughly moved by The Sea-thing Child's work on the containment of his own confusion and fears first by building a tangible fortress made of stones etc, then moving on to more symbolic traces in the sand as his inner sense of confidence grows. I hope I am not putting you off: it's absolutely wonderful!!!

The Sea-thing Child is a lovely story of a baby... well, sea-thing (a heap of feathers and scales) who is blown out of his nest during a storm and has to grow up alone. He does this slowly, in fits and starts (spending much of his time hiding in a stone igloo) with the help of his friend the fiddler crab and some wise advice from an albatross. The beautiful illustrations enhance the mood as the sea-thing goes from fear to finding a home in the wild sea. One to remember for years
