Reviews

[Mabel ] is a warm story of friendship, with countless rich details in the illustrations: a treasure-strewn ocean floor and fabulously expressive nudibranchs (a kind of sea slug). Watkins' prose style is fun to read aloud, clipped and spare. a special book about being special."--Kirkus Reviews
"Watkins anchors his congenial fable in friendship and self-acceptance. delightfully illustrated. A treasure worth discovering."--Booklist
"[D]eft characterization and detailed world building by Watkins (Most Marshmallows) transcend the formulaic. artful renditions of beautiful sea slugs, undersea corals, and other marine life provide visual fireworks that amplify the story's compassionate message."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
"[Mabel] is a refreshing story of difference, acceptance, friendship, and self-confidence. A recommended purchase."-School Library Journal
