Celia Seagull perched on the cliff, eyeing up plastic and watching it drift. Scanning for pieces to weave through her nest, she held her beak high and puffed out her chest. Join Celia Seagull as she gathers plastic pieces from the ocean to build a bigger, better nest. With far too much on her agenda, busy Celia refuses to help sea creatures who are tangled in the scrap. But when Celia runs into trouble, who will help her?

Celia Seagull and the Plastic Sea is a powerful debut and one which packs a punch. Focusing on the nest building antics of busy seagull Celia, Nicole Miller's story demonstrates the perils of overlooking the danger plastic poses to our oceans and marine creatures. It also encourages readers to be less self-centred and to care for others.

In harmony with Wellingtonian Lily Uivel’s captivating illustrations, Celia Seagull and the Plastic Sea will inspire children to help protect our marine life and oceans, one piece of plastic at a time; and to never be too busy to look out for others. There is also a strong sense of playfulness and fun in the book’s rhyming language and quirky narrative, which complement the serious messages being conveyed.

Nicole Miller’s debut book is “A delightful story that speaks to the harm that is caused by the plastic waste that ends up in the sea. The message is clear: we must dispose of plastic safely and help all life in the ocean,” says world famous conservationist, Dr Jane Goodall DBE.
