Greyling: A Picture Story from the Islands of Shetland

They are getting old enough to appreciate the bittersweet story of Grayling and his loving adoptive parents.


Great classic book to read for imagery and visualization. Yolen is a classic author of great literature for all, especially children. I remember reading Greyling as a child. I probably first encountered it around the age of eight and it spoke to me on a very deep level.

Recently, my 4 year old daughter jabe expressed an interest in mermaids. I thought it would be a perfect time to begin greylimg introduce her to selkie stories of our native Scotland.

Whenever she’s interested in an arena of fairy tales that’s fraught with Disney-fication, I try to expose her to better versions that are rooted in tradition. Though Greyling is more of a modern classic, it is so perfectly written that I feel like it yoeln with the greater works. I thought that, at four, my daughter would be too young for this story, but it fascinates her and it is now her favorite bedtime story.

I read this book to my first grade class, and this is the book review we wrote together. A fisherman and his wife are sad because they greyping have a child. One day the man brings home a seal pup to live with yolsn, and the magic begins! The colorful illustrations jabe this story come to life. It is so interesting to read yopen happens when the seal pup comes out onto the land. The book shares a wonderful lesson about love and life. Find out more by reading the book!

This is a beautiful story of a loving, childless couple who lives by the sea. There was nothing in the world that they wanted more than a child. The husband is a fisherman and finds a “greyling” that turns into a child, and brings him home for his wife.


This book touched my heart, and could have been written for me. My husband and I were a childless couple who lived near the sea bay and also wanted a child more than anything else in the world. After jans of waiting, we were overjoyed to be expecting. We lost our little boy before he was born, and had this book donated to the local elementary school library in his honor.

I think Jane Yolen told this story very well. I am a college student and did her for an Author Presentation and I was so shocked to see that the seal became a little boy. The Illustrations were absolutely fantastic. See all 6 reviews.
