In a land where people flow between ocean and land, a seal and a fisherman sing together under a glowing moon. One in a series of illustrated short stories that explore the deeper, darker side of our connection with the natural world. For older children and adults, inspired by ancient folk tales. Feel a little bit of magic, a few shivers down the spine.
