"Another creative blending of real-life oceanography and gentle fantasy in a smart and entertaining series." --Kirkus Reviews
"Children will be drawn to the colors and images, and amused by the story of Kobee and his friends. Far more significantly, they will learn some important information that may help them to appreciate the ocean, and the beauty and diversity of the world beneath the water's surface." --Foreword Reviews
"Kobee and his ocean pals are full of fun, adventure, and inspiration. They give the reader a better sense of the magic and mystery within our ocean world. Following them onto the historic wreck dive of the SS Antonio López off of Puerto Rico, we learn all sorts of fascinating facts about wildlife and dangers, all while being entranced by the camaraderie of these fast friends. Even if one never gets a chance to 'peek below the blue veneer' of our planet, the adventures of Kobee and his aquatic mates are sure to make anyone appreciate how precious life is below the waves." --Fabien Cousteau, oceanographic explorer and conservationist
