We had some lovely news yesterday. Jocelyn Porter’s fantastic picture book, Finn and Fred’s Arctic Adventure, has made a whopping £650 for the Cornish Seal Sanctuary!

When we published the book, Jocelyn kindly offered the Cornish Seal Sanctuary lots of free copies so that they could sell them in their shop and the money would all go to the sanctuary. The Cornish Seal Sanctuary loved the book and were only too happy to accept!

The books sold well and so we gave them more copies. And we’ve now heard they have sold all 100 books, raising a tidy sum of £650 for the Sanctuary – while also putting smiles on the faces of the lucky children who now own this magical book.

Beautifully illustrated by the talented Leo Brown, the story follows Finn and Fred the octopus, who fly to the Arctic in their magic bus where they meet a hungry polar bear, bump into an angry walrus, and listen as the whales sing them a song about the dangers of melting arctic ice. Finn and Fred watch the arctic lights as whales, narwals and seals float by. When he returns home, Finn asks children everywhere to join him in protecting the environment.

It’s a wonderful story and a very fitting book to sell in the Cornish Seal Sanctuary, an organisation that works tirelessly to rescue and provide expert care for sick, injured, or distressed seals and other marine animals that need help.

If you’re planning a trip to Cornwall, we highly recommend a visit to the Cornish Seal Sanctuary. And if you’d like to get a great picture book with some amazing illustrations of all manner of marine wildlife, you can purchase Finn and Fred’s Arctic Adventure from our website here.
