Midwest Book Review

Stanley Seagull is a green look at the strange odyssey of an Atlantic Ocean seagull who discovers he misses the ocean when carried far away from it in a garbage truck. Humorous multimedia colored illustrations contrast with the evolving tale of the human trash imprint as experienced and perceived by a seagull. Stanley Seagull along with his friends Seymour and Walter are trying to find food in trash cans, the ocean, garbage trucks and other strange places. How do humans affect the ocean and land? Experience the answer through the eyes of a seagull. Stanley Seagull is suitable for children age 7 and up.

Stanley Seagull
by Leslie

Stanley Seagull by Cathy Mazur is a very cute book! I originally got it to read to my daughter. But, I think it's a bit over her head. She's five and she likes a book with cadence, rhyme and rhythm. This book has more of a moral story to it. I would say this is more of a book for a child in elementary school. Stanley learns that there's no place like home. It would be a cute book paired with watching the Wizard of Oz in a thematic unit in a classroom in perhaps a 2nd or 3rd grade.

If you're looking for an enjoyable book for this age range, I highly recommend. It's cute, an easy read, and a sweet little moral at the end. There's even a Stanley Seagull Facebook!! Check it out, I promise, you'll enjoy.

Author reads to Dunmore students

Former Mid Valley School District librarian Cathy Mazur of Dickson City reads "Stanley Seagull" to a group of students at Dunmore Elementary on Thursday. Ms. Mazur found inspiration to write "Stanley Seagull," because of the seagulls she saw flying around landfills in the area.
