Globe-renowned swimmer and bestselling author Lynne Cox and Caldecott Medal-winning illustrator Brian Floca crew up to carry us this inspiring story of an elephant seal who understood exactly where she belonged.
Below is the extraordinary story of Elizabeth, a true-everyday living elephant seal who designed her house in the Avon River in the city of Christchurch, New Zealand. When Elizabeth decides to stretch out across a two-lane street, the citizens fear she might get harm or trigger visitors incidents, so a team of volunteers tows her out to sea. But Elizabeth swims all the way back again to Christchurch. The volunteers catch her once more and again—each time towing her farther, even hundreds of miles away—but, however, Elizabeth finds her way back again house.
