Seagull and Sea Dragon

Sydni Gregg

Aladdin, 2019

Agent: Thao Le

Meet Seagull.
Meet Sea Dragon.
One comes from the sky.
One comes from the sea.

And both are scared of the other’s world.

But when they meet, they discover they might have more in common than they ever imagined.

Debut author-illustrator Sydni Gregg beautifully illustrates the idea that sometimes new friends can come from unlikely and unexpected places.

"A lovely tale about how friendships can flourish by taking the time to chat. A good read-aloud choice for storytime."
School Library Journal Review

"Beginning with the endpapers, the luminous artwork, likely digitally created, depicts the pastel colors of the sea gull's sky and the shadowy depths of the sea dragon's watery home. Varying perspectives give young readers a bird's-eye view down to the sea as well as a watery glimpse upward from among the coral and fish. Split-panel spreads give the book a graphic-novel look and feel. Young readers can learn scientific vocabulary such as "coral," "feathers," "moon jellyfish," "flock," "fins," and more, encouraging curious first scientists to begin their own information journey. Two curious creatures learn about each other and the world around them in this simple but exceptionally well-crafted story."
