NEW BOOK: A Seal Swam In From The Sea

15th April 2021

Ceratopia Books are extremely pleased to announce their new children’s picture book, A Seal Swam In From The Sea. And what’s even more exciting is that for every copy sold, Ceratopia Books will donate £5 to help save the Hythe Ferry.


Witness a lonely seal swimming up Southampton Water as she searches for a friend. Along the way she meets a cruise ship, Hythe Pier, and even the Hythe Ferry itself. 


Created by local author and illustrator Simon Chadwick, the book aims to help keep the essential Hythe Ferry service running, something Simon used daily for ten years when he worked in Southampton. Now you can do your bit to help too by purchasing a copy from the Hythe Ferry Ticket Office (Hythe Pier), Waterside Herald office (opposite Hythe Pier), Toys Ahoy (Hythe), WHSmith Local (Dibden Purlieu), Sandra’s Florist (Holbury), Oyster Financial Planning (Hythe), or directly from this site.


Each book is just £6, and makes a great gift for children. Help us support the Hythe Ferry and get your copy today!
