Reviews

"I loved everything about this story. The art is just beautiful...It's a look at preservation and oceanography from a different point of view, and makes a realistic-looking shark less threatening, even likable. Kids will appreciate the misunderstood predator; how many times have kids been called out for exaggerating a recollection that is absolutely true from their point of view?...This one is a must-add to storytimes and books where sharks and undersea life are popular."
--Mom Read It (blog)

"The story...challenges readers of all ages to honor the voices of others and their lived experiences...The cadence of its rhyming and its luminous illustrations of ocean depths, as well as an expansive sky-to-universe stretching palette, will render a child's wonderment for learning about a world that is brand-new."
--What's the 411

"This is a lovely, gently philosophical book that reads like an aquatic Twilight Zone episode...An engaging and beautifully illustrated tale."
--The Fan Brothers, authors/illustrators of The Night Gardener

"What must a shark makes of the scientists who study her? I won't be able to look at the animals I tag quite the same way ever again."
--Dr. Alistair Dove, marine biologist, Georgia Aquarium
