Mister Cleghorn's Seal review

I am always up for the girls to read new and different books to the usual ones they would pick for themselves, so when we got the opportunity to read the new book from Judith Kerr I said Yes. The intention was for Kacy to read it but it wasn't quick enough or challenging enough for her because its target audience  for 7+ so decided to let Kira to read it which she was excited about.

Mister Cleghorn's Seal was inviting with beautifully drawn black and white illustrations on each page which captured Kira imagination and wanted her to carry on reading.

What do you do if you find an abandoned seal pup on a rock in the middle of the sea? well, take it home with you to your flat, of course.

At least that's what Mr Albert Cleghorn thought, though perhaps he hadn't considered all the complications...

This is the story of what then happened to Mr Cleghorn and Charlie the seal in their determination to find a home for Charlie and, incidentally, happiness for them both.

Sometimes funny, sometimes sad, Mr Cleghorn's Seal is ac lassic in the making from the inimitable Judith Kerr.

Kira Reading Mister Cleghorn's Seal

Kira reading a tricky word with help from Nanna
Kira is loving this book, she is captured with the story of Charlie the seal and Mr Cleghorn and is eager to find out what happens, she has found it sad in places and funny, one funny part she told me about was when Mr Cleghorn took the babies bottle out of the babies mouth to give it to Charlie.

This is a wonderful book for any child who loves animals and an eager reader for a new challenge.  You can buy this book from Amazon RRP £9.09
