The Wider Sun

Sophia Carr-Gomm 14:59, UK

Everything changes for little Ru when her mother whisks her away to stay with her grandmother on the remote Isle of Skye, Scotland. Growing up she always heard tales of Selkies, the mythical creatures that resemble a seal in the water but assume human form on land. Little does she know, she’s about to meet one.
