Andre the Famous Harbor Seal by Fran Hodgkins

Sometimes, just sometimes, a human being and a wild animal make a special connection that changes both of their lives. So it was with Rockport, Maine's Harry Goodridge and the harbor seal pup he named André.

André proved as gregarious as Harry, learning tricks that delighted dozens of visitors each day. The harbor seal soon became a legend, migrating south to Massachusetts each winter.

Here, with the help of the Goodridge family, award-winning author Fran Hodgkins and talented muralist / illustrator Yetti Frenkel retell the story of Harry and André for young children, who can still visit Rockport Harbor and run their hands over the polished granite of the life-size statue that will forever ensure this seal's presence in Maine history.
