Mark Seth Lender and Valerie Pettis, "Smeagull the Seagull: A True Story"

Smeagull the Seagull comes to the house near the shore every day and knocks on the sliding glass door. He knocks when he's hungry, and the people who live there feed him. 

Smeagull rules the roost! Keeping him fed is an exhausting job, but when Smeagull disappears, it makes clear what an important family member Smeagull has become. 

There are few places on earth without seagulls, both on shore and inland, and every child will find Smeagull captivating and yet familiar. Smeagull the Seagull teaches young children that animals are precious and have needs and feelings and family, just like us.

This is a true story. Smeagull is a wild herring gull who does indeed knock at Valerie and Mark's house every day where he is fed scraps from sustainable seafood.

The book is illustrated in full color by the graphic designer, Valerie Elaine Pettis. The text is written in rhyme by Mark Seth Lender, a published author and producer for wildlife content at Living on Earth, which is nationally broadcast on Public Radio.
