‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

Peter and the Seal
by Rick de Haas
Age Range: Under_5
Peter and his dog Leo are sailing under the water in their little submarine until suddenly they run aground. Peter is able to see his home – the light of the lighthouse in the distance where Grandma is waiting anxiously for him. With the tide going out they soon realise that they are stuck and have no choice but to spend the night on the sandbank. Peter and Leo decide to take shelter inside the submarine because they don’t feel safe outside. Soon they discover that they are not alone. What is that shuffling sound that they keep hearing? And who is the culprit who keeps pushing the submarine?
This is another story about Peter, who is always anxious to help others, by Dutch author and illustrator Rick de Haas. See also Peter and the Winter Sleepers.
