Children of the Sea: First Edition, printed in 2019 by Laskeek Bay Conservation Society.
The Ancient Murrelet is a bird that comes to land in Canada only on the remote islands of Haida Gwaii, off the north coast of British Columbia.For mother and father murrelet land is a dangerous place: their true element is the sea. But they have to brave the risk of coming ashore to raise their annual brood. Children of the sea describes their time on land and the amazing adventure of their chicks between their nest and the ocean shore. Written by Tony Gaston, an expert on the biology of the Ancient Murrelet, the book is both an adventure story and a true outline of the species' breeding behaviour and is beautifully illustrated by Haida Gwaii-based artist Judy Hilgemann. Suitable for children 5-8 years old.
Authored by Anthony (Tony) Gaston, a founding member of Laskeek Bay Conservation Society, a naturalist and a writer who has been studying Ancient Murrelets in Haida Gwaii since 1984.
Illustrated by Judy Hilgemann, an artist and illustrator living on Haida Gwaii.
