Adventure tinged with magic when a boy finds a sealskin in a cave
in this exciting junior novel. Winner of Esther Glen Medal 2013.
While holidaying at his father's house, Jake explores Wellington's
wild south coast, with its high cliffs, biting winds, and its
fierce seals. When he stumbles upon a perfectly preserved sealskin,
hidden in a crevice at Red Rocks, he's compelled to take it home
and hide it under his bed, setting off a chain of events that
threatens to destroy his family. Red Rocks takes the Celtic myth of
the selkies, or seal people, and transplants it into the New
Zealand landscape, throwing an ordinary boy into an adventure
tinged with magic. With its beautiful writing and eerie atmosphere,
junior readers will be thrilled and moved by this captivating
story. Shortlisted for the NZ Post Children's Book Awards 2013.
