Those two, heartwarming characters, Zealy and Whubba, develop their relationship through learning, loving and protecting one another. Although this little "killer" whale and fluffy little sealpup would normally be the most unlikely of friends, they become the most, adorable, fun-loving pair in the sea! Zealy learns to swim in this episode with her daddy's guidance and Whubba practices with her, while having tons of fun doing all kinds of tricks that Zealy never knew she could do! Just by practicing with Whubba, she learns so many moves, splishing and splashing, diving over and under Whubba and even riding on his back! Float along with Zealy and Whubba and enjoy the learning and the fun! The little "killer" and fluffy sealpup will kill you with their kindness and sweetness, melting your heart as they put a smile on your face and your little one's, too. Let the world of Zealy and Whubba light up your world with happiness! More adventures are coming- watch for their new escapades that follow soon!

We received this book to give an honest review.
So I read this book first to A who is 3 and she seemed to like it. She was really interested in the the fact that Zealy was white and her parents were not the same as her. So we had to talk and kind of put it in easy kid terms on why she may look different but that doesn't mean her parents love her any less. 
I tried reading this to K who is 10 and he said he didn't like it but he was more worried about why Zealy has only one whisker which I had no answer for. 
In this story Zealy is learning how to do a lot of things for the first time from her friend Whubba like swimming and catching fish to riding on his back. You can just tell that Zealy is just a curious little seal pup and you can't help but love her. 
I did find it a bit weird how we would get a page then a picture next to it then two full pages of sentences but no pictures. I think that maybe if it was done to where there were pictures on every page that would keep the children to want to sit longer? I know for A when I would get to the pages that were like that she wanted me to flip over to look at pictures. 
Other than that it was a good fun read.
