According to Celtic folklore, a Selkie can shed its skin and become human. Before this is possible, Mama Kim must teach Peter how to sustain himself by learning to swim and catch his own food. Peter’s mother knows that someday she must tell him of his special power, and she also knows that he will leave her one-day and go out on his own.
