“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."

-Larry Peterson, author of Slippery Willie's Stupid, Ugly Shoes

“Children will enjoy following Stanley as he discovers fun, adventure, and the beauty of home."

-Cheryl Malandrinos, author of Little Shepherd

“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.”

-Sue Piorkowski,
librarian, Pocono Mountain School District, Coolbaugh Elementary Center
