Summer with Selik
“Summer with Selik” is an enchanting story of the relationship between a teenage Norwegian girl named Katrine and a newborn harbor seal. Each year, a few seal pups are left orphaned off the rocky Norwegian coastline. When Katrine finds a two-day-old baby seal alone on a tiny island of rock, she rescues it from certain death, brings it to her home, and names it Selik. What follows is a bittersweet tale of adventure, laughter and tears. The bond that develops between Katrine and Selik during the seal’s recuperation is all the more poignant because Katrine knows she must return Selik to the open sea once he is healthy and strong enough and has learned to survive in the wild.
