World-renowned swimmer and author Lynne Cox and Caldecott Medal-winning illustrator Brian Floca team up to bring us this inspiring story of an elephant seal who knew exactly where she belonged. Here is the incredible story of Elizabeth, a real-life elephant seal who made her home in the Avon River in the city of Christchurch, New Zealand. When Elizabeth decides to stretch out across a two-lane road, the citizens worry she might get hurt or cause traffic accidents, so a group of volunteers tows her out to sea. But Elizabeth swims all the way back to Christchurch. The volunteers catch her again and again -- each time towing her farther, even hundreds of miles away -- but, still, Elizabeth finds her way back home. Includes back matter with information about elephant seals.… (mer)

Elizabeth, Queen of the Seas by Lynne Cox is the beautiful, true story of Elizabeth, the elephant seal from New Zealand.

She decided she wanted to live in the city and nothing was going to stop her. Read along in the story to see how Elizabeth makes her dreams come true.

The book is beautifully illustrated and keeps your attention. It's a great story for young readers, easy to read, and keeps your attention!

Long-distance swimmer Lynne Cox relates the true story of Elizabeth, an elephant seal who lived in Christchurch, New Zealand, in this wonderful picture-book. Swimming in the sweet water of the Avon River, and sunning herself on a nearby road, our phocine heroine, dubbed "Elizabeth, Queen of the Seas" by the people of Christchurch because of her regal mien, knew she belonged in the city. The humans, on the other hand, were not as sure, and tried multiple times to relocate her to wilder locales. To their surprise, and eventual delight, Elizabeth always made her way home again, until the humans (always a little slow) finally accepted her presence, and adjusted their behavior accordingly...

Elizabeth, Queen of the Seas is an absolute delight! I found myself rooting for the eponymous Elizabeth, as she struggles just to remain in the place she has chosen as a home, and think the choice to have Michael - one of the children who originally told Lynne Cox the story - as a focal point was a good storytelling decision, as it highlights the positive impact this elephant seal had on the humans around her. The pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations by Caldecott medalist Brian Floca are every bit as engaging as the text, capturing the poignancy of Elizabeth's many journeys. I particularly liked the moonlit scene in which she arrives home for the last time. I appreciated the informative afterword, which included a photograph of the real Elizabeth, although I would have liked more information about her, rather than about elephant seals in general. Still, despite that quibble, this is an excellent book, one I wholeheartedly recommend to all young animal lovers, as well as to all Brian Floca fans. ( )

This nonfiction picture book describes the true story of an elephant seal named Elizabeth. Elizabeth makes Christchurch, New Zealand her home. A young boy named Michael becomes attached to her. However, she is soon relocated out of the city for her safety. To everyone's amazement (especially Michael), she soon returns to Christchurch. This happens several times until the city decided Elizabeth belonged there as it was truly her home. The book includes some facts about southern elephant seals at the end. ( )
