Description

The first day in the life of a baby sea lion The first day of life for a baby sea lion in the Galapagos Islands can be hazardous. Within an hour of its birth, its mother must leave it to fend for itself while she dives deep to eat enough fish to nourish her baby. This story, about a baby sea lion's adventures before it is reunited with its mother at the end of the day, is graphically and simply told, and captures the authentic world of the Galapagos wild life on the sandy beach and in the sea. AUTHOR: Sarah Martin, historian, enjoys writing creatively and working collaboratively with a graphic artist so that her words come to life in beautiful pictures. 'Galapagos Day' is her first children's picture book. Her first novel, 'When Is Forever?' is about family relationships, focusing particularly on the grandparent/grandchild bond, and is about to be released in the US, and she is currently working on the history of Bush Heritage Australia, which will be published in 2016. ILLUSTRATOR: Vincent Agostino has been illustrating for over ten years and also taught illustration to keen students for over eight years at Melbourne Polytechnic.
Picture books her has illustrated include 'When Elephants Lived in the Sea', which won him the Crichton Award in 2007, 'My Silent World' and 'Little Chelone'. Vincent is currently living in Glasgow, United Kingdom, and working on his next project. SELLING POINTS: * Accurate study of the sea lion life cycle in a unique habitat * Galapagos Islands are a rich resource for environmental studies * Award-winning illustrator's stunning graphic illustrations
