Seabird became the mascot for four generations of seafarers: aboard a whaler, a clipper ship, a steamship, and finally an airplane. The story takes a unique look at America's seafaring history through the eyes of a carved bird and her special owners. It is full of beautiful, full-page paintings as well as fascinating and informative black-and-white drawings that ring the text. Recommended for ages 8 to 12. A 1949 Newbery Honor book.

"The subject takes the reader over the globe and provides room for imagination to aid history in vitalizing the period. The beauty of the illustrations gives the book distinction." Horn Book Guide
Hannah1 Stars Out Of 5January 2, 2009HannahI found this book boring and uninteresting. They lack the story plot and had very little to substantiate them. The pictures are okay, while the text is extremely lacking.
Connie Tiscareno5 Stars Out Of 5May 31, 2008Connie TiscarenoYou will not be disappointed if you order any of the five Holling books from CBD- the best place to buy books online. Their price is the best I've seen anywhere and the books are amazing. Seabird is my favorite. You will learn science, history and geography as you enjoy the story. The illustrations are incredibly beautiful! Amazing details and drawings in the margins are as educational and entertaining as the main text. Every family should have these in their home library- a must for nature lovers and sea-goers!
