Havgudens datter is the fifth book in the exciting easy-reading series about Tal the wolf-boy and Nea the mammoth-girl.
Tal and Nea are on a visit to Seal Island. One day, the fearsome wild boar warriors come paddling along on rafts to attack them. Luckily, the seal-folk have the Sea God's daughter on their side. She is able to talk to the Sea God, and out of the sea comes a huge whale, who sends the wild boar tribe a long way off with a splash of its tail.
