★ "Ballad stanzas celebrate gulls who flourish both near and far from the sea. Sayre, who has introduced all kinds of animals with clever rhymes and rhythms designed for reading aloud, turns to the gull family. From the laughing gulls on the title page to the California gull on the final, dedication page, first-time picture-book illustrator Bogdańska's digital images... convey... the range of gull appearances and the wide variety of their habitats. (A) deceptively simple, soaringly successful flight." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"A bird familiar to many children, the seagull receives well-deserved attention in this attractive picture book. Written in short, rhyming verses, the text touches on many aspects of seagulls' lives, such as feeding, preening, nesting, and flight. On broad, double-page spreads, the accomplished digital artwork captures the birds in action within different settings. An informative picture book for reading aloud to kids intrigued by gulls." -- Booklist
