Elizabeth, Queen of the Seas - Lynne Cox, Brian Floca

Do elephant seals have homing radars? That’s what you’ll be wondering after reading Lynne Cox’s Elizabeth, Queen of the Seas (Schwartz & Wade, $17.99)—or you would be, if you weren’t overwhelmed by the heart-warming tenacity of the ungainly seal. Based on the true story of an elephant seal that found a favorite sunning spot in the middle of a city street in Christchurch, New Zealand, this picture book shows the lengths to which a community will go to protect one of its own—even if she is a different species—as well as the amazing results of a determination to return home. Brian Floca’s delicate, muted illustrations allow Elizabeth’s almost unbelievable story to shine.  Ages 5-9. SB
