The Seal Hunter: A Magic Beans Story



A short story from the Magic Beans series. When a fisherman comes face-to-face with the King of the Seals, his life changes for ever.

Duncan MacKinnon is an ordinary fisherman who lives in a croft by the sea. Everything is going swimmingly well for him, until one day a mysterious stranger knocks at his door . . .

This story is a magic bean. It may not look much like a bean, but I can promise you that it is. For if you plant it in a young mind, it will grow into a love of story and reading. These beans are favourite fairytales and legends that will delight, thrill and thoroughly entertain. Each story has been brilliantly crafted by one of the best-loved writers for children.

This story was published by David Fickling Books as part of the Magic Beans anthology. The complete anthology is available in hardback and in ebook format.
