Pip the Pelican lives in a coastal fishing village. He learns how to navigate the dangers in the waterways and find safe passage. Pip likes taking risks and finding out for himself, but he also listens to his elders. The fishing boats provide dinner, and Pip relishes fish guts and scaly fins thrown overboard. He scoops up every last fish tail with his bucket bill. Pip is a 'show-off' and always wants to be the centre of attention. He loves having his photo taken, and poses for a 'selfie'. He especially likes scaring Ellie and her mum, by diving right in front of them. Sally Seagull has a 'crush' on Pip and admires him. She helps him free his webbed feet from the plastic ring. Word play, repetition and rhythm are used throughout the book to promote language development.
The author lives in a coastal region of New South Wales, Australia. She has a background in teaching children with sensory impairment. The author seeks to promote language development through stories which explore the natural environment. Pelicans form the fabric of life around the lakes and waterways of the coast. The author wants the reader to discover new experiences and enjoy the birds that inhabit wetlands and estuaries. With three sons, she has a keen interest in marine ecology, conservation and management of the coastal region.
