On the shore, a seal looks like a slow, dozy creature that spends its time lazing around or flumping along the sand. But underwater, it's a different story. Splash!... Seal dives deep, with a body just the right shape to shoot through the water and power down with his back flippers. He slips through a seaweed forest, and -- sensing a predator nearby -- dives even deeper to stay safe. Finally it's time to make a sudden twist and turn to catch his fishy dinner. Merging a lyrical narrative sprinkled with fascinating facts and aww-inspiring illustrations, here is one nature adventure that's hard to resist.Back matter includes an index.
