Meet Murphy the Seal, the third children’s book written and illustrated by Linda Fahrlin in the Atlantic Art studios on the North West coast of Ireland.
In the Wild Atlantic Ocean lives a happy seal pup called Murphy. Murphy enjoys playing with his little sister and usually swims close to his Mum and Dad. One day Murphy and his sister are playing chase with a fish. The water is whirling around them and the current is getting stronger. Murphy tries to swim against the current but it is too strong. Follow Murphy on his adventure in the Wild Atlantic Ocean. How will Murphy get back to his Mum, Dad and Sister? This book is inspired by a real seal rescue and seal release of a seal pup. The village of Strandhill in County Sligo, Ireland was invited to join the event when a rehabilitated seal pup was reintroduced back in the Atlantic Ocean.
“Last year we were very fortunate to see one of the seal releases by Seal Rescue Ireland. The release of the seal pup inspired the children’s book “Murphy the Seal”, as we talked about what could have happened to the seal. We decided to call him “Murphy” after the sea lion we used to see at Taronga Zoo when living in Sydney.”
