Elizabeth, Queen of the Sea by Lynne Cox


Based on the story told to her by a boy and his sister, author Lynne Cox and illustrator Brian Floca bring to life the tale of Elizabeth, an elephant seal who makes her home in the Avon River which flows through the city of Christchurch, New Zealand.

Although the strong, powerful and regal Elizabeth (named after the English queen) is a welcome and lovable addition to the city, there were some who felt that she needed to be with her own kind far out to sea, especially when she started to sun herself in the middle of busy streets. Elizabeth, however, has other ideas.
