    • The trailer is really cool! You would love this story. I’m reviewing it during Children’s book Week AND giving away a copy of the book. Maybe you could win it. 😀 Just like last year there will be a giveaway everyday of CBW. 🙂


  2. I’ve always been fascinated with the ocean and the creatures that live there. It’s a whole different world under the water! Thanks for sharing this Sue!


  3. What a WONderful premise for a series! Especially written by an expert 😀 The excerpt was totally compelling, that’s for sure! The oceans are endangered and humankind just keeps doing the damage. I’m thinking that’s got to be in those stories. I hope so 🙂 And the illustrations look beautiful!

    Thanks, Sue!
