"A touching and beautifully illustrated story, with just the right measure of dramatic tension. As one who is totally into the ocean and endless grazing (though not from garbage trucks), I loved it. I was going to give it to a kid when I bought it, but now I'm not so sure."

|“Stanley Seagull has everything he needs and loves his life but then he gets greedy and wants more. The author does a beautiful job of teaching kids that sometimes wanting more when you already have all that you need may ultimately bring you much less."|
|“Children will enjoy following Stanley as he discovers fun, adventure, and the beauty of home."|
|“Stanley Seagull is a heartwarming character. Former school librarian Cathy Mazur has provided a wonderful story for children of all ages. ”|
-Jill Mackarey, librarian, Western Wayne School District, R.D. Wilson Elementary School
|“In Northeastern Pennsylvania, more than a hundred miles from the ocean, there are lots of seagulls. This charming tale puts a face, a voice and a heart on the sea birds that seem so far from their homes. The problem solving is wonderful and is believable. It is a great story to tell and it answers the questions so many adults and children ask, ‘how did the seagulls get here?’ It is a great read aloud and a story I look forward to sharing with my students.”|
