Cecily's Summer

Cecily’s Summer is the delightful tale of an abandoned seal pup’s six week adventure into our human world. Finding the pup scared and alone on the beach, Nan Lincoln and her family rescue her and name her Cecily. Cecily takes us from the moments of anxiety waiting for Mom through all the ups and downs of adapting to the humans. Through the eyes of a seal pup we see the bond that is forged and eventually must be broken as she returns to her world. Nan Lincoln brought us the best selling The Summer of Cecily and now we hear Cecily’s Story, beautifully illustrated by Patricia Wynne.
