Skye the Puffling: A Baby Puffin's Adventure (Picture Kelpies) (Paperback)
One morning Skye, a cheeky baby puffin with an appetite for adventure, sneaks out of her parents' burrow, tumbles off the cliff edge and accidentally lands on a passing gannet's back
Skye's thrilling journey takes her around the Firth of Forth and finds her in a few tricky situations -- a perilous piggy-back ride, an icy dip in the sea and a host of Scottish bird life.
Written in Lynne Rickards' signature rhyme, this charming coming-of-age story features dynamic watercolor illustrations of Scottish sea life and a very cute puffling
The adorable sequel to the best-selling Harris the Hero is set in Scotland around the Firth of Forth, the Isle of May, North Berwick and the Bass Rock.
