One day while Teelo the cat waits on Cloud Island beach, he hears a strange and sad crying noise--a stranded young seal pup.

Victor names her Lucille and decides she should live temporarily in the bathtub. When Lucille is old enough, Victor tries to return her to the sea--but she is terrified of the now unfamiliar ocean. Victor devises a way to get Lucille swimming again, and soon she is splashing around. Teelo wonders if he will ever see his friend again. Several summers later, Lucille comes back to visit with her pups.

Includes information on harbor seals.

I really like to read this book with my kids. This is part of a series and it's a great way to teach kids about living on the west coast as the book refers to geographical locations that we can relate to.
