Description: Tom Gilling's wickedly funny, magical novel centers around a bizarre birth in the winter of 1821. One squally afternoon on a coastal colony known as Van Diemen's Land, a local resident, Sarah Dyer, gives birth to the strangest child ever seen, a creature more like a seal than a human. The town is naturally mystified to learn the news, and in a flurry they come to investigate the incredulous event. The Reverend Mr. Kidney believes it to be a virgin birth, while Mr. Sculley, the resident science 'expert', theorizes that the pup may be akin to the mysterious sooterkin -- a monstruous, mythical mammal born to women several centuries ago in Holland.

In spite of his unconventional beginnings, the Dyer sooterkin baby becomes a joy to his parents and his 9-year-old brother, as well as an important member of the Van Diemen's Land community. The tale which follows brings to light the troublesome fate of this unusual infant boy, with a cast of quirky characters. It is deliciously fun summer fiction at its finest.
