Summary

An exquisite new story to delight readers young and old, from a much-loved writer.
This heartfelt dramatisation is voiced by award-winning British actor Bill Nighy, with an afterword recorded by Judith herself.
What do you do if you find an abandoned seal pup on a rock in the middle of the sea? Well, take it home with you to your flat, of course. At least that's what Mr. Albert Cleghorn thought, though perhaps he hadn't considered all the complications....
This is the story of what then happened to Mr Cleghorn and Charlie the seal in their determination to find a home for Charlie and, incidentally, happiness for them both.
Sometimes funny, sometimes sad, Mister Cleghorn's Seal is a classic in the making from the inimitable Judith Kerr.

Critic reviews

Praise for The Tiger Who Came to Tea: "Near perfection of form is embellished by clear, expressive illustrations. The pace is exactly right, the resolution totally satisfying." (Dorothy Butler, Babies Need Books)
Praise for My Henry: "It bears all her trademarks, lively illustration, a cheerful blend of the everyday and the fantastic.... A deeply poignant yet ultimately uplifting tale...." (Giulia Rhode, Sunday Express)
Praise for One Night in the Zoo): "Lovely...uses soothing, pastel illustrations and exotic animals to make basic counting seem unintimidating." ( Daily Telegraph)
Praise for Mog the Forgetful Cat): "Grandparents are likely to get as much fun out of seeing it again as the new generation of fans just learning to read!" ( Choice Magazine)
