A truly delightful picture book that tells the true story of an elephant seal named Elizabeth and her adventures in Christchurch, New Zealand and beyond.
Perfect for older preschoolers and younger elementary.

Elizabeth is an elephant seal who lives in Christchurch New Zealand. She doesnt seem to mind living alone in the city, and the fresh water river. Once day she crawls up to bask on the road and almost gets hit by a car. The citizens of Christchurch decide that they must do somthing to protect the people and the seal. They use a boat to take her out to sea to live with the other seals. Each time they take her out to sea, farther and farther, she would always come back to Christchurch. Eventually the people gave up trying to move Elizabeth. Instead they put up a seal crossing sign where she liked to lay in the road.
