The Famous Harbor Seal

Fran Hodgkins, Yetti Frenkel

Hard Cover, 32 pages.


Sometimes, just sometimes, a human being and a wild animal make a special connectiona that changes both of their lives. so it was with Rockport, Maine’s Harry Goodridge and the harbor seal pup he named Andre.

The two became inseparable, though the seal was free to come and go as he pleased. The harbor seal soon became a legend, migrating south to Massachusetts each winter and returning to Rockport each spring.
