Prince William by Gloria Rand, illustrated by Ted Rand

Published in 1993 by Square Fish.

This book came out when oil spills were making headlines.  Books and movies about saving marine life were also very popular at this time. This is a beautifully illustrated book about a girl in Prince William Sound who finds a baby seal in an oil spill and helps nurse him back to health.

Gloria and Ted Rand were a husband and wife team who created numerous children's books. They lived on Mercer Island in Washington.  There is an interesting article about them in the Seattle PI here. Ted Rand died in 2005 at the age of 89. He illustrated 78 children's books.
