One snowy night in downtown Halifax, Nova Scotia, a strange figure peeks out from behind a parked car. A woman screams! So begins a lost harbour seal's adventure through the steep streets of the sleepy winter city. Soon Constable and Officer are on the case, and if they work together, they just might be able to help the harbour seal find his way back home.

Celebrated children's author and illustrator Doretta Groenendyk brings the true story of Halifax's famous winter 2015 flip-slippery visitor to life with colorful paintings and simple text. A Harbour Seal in Halifax is destined to become a family favorite.
