Product description

Review

"Ariki is an exotic heroine who easily wins the readers to her side: man and nature need not always be in competition. Her unusual gift for reading the stars and communicating with creatures of the sea brings a mythical quality to the Pacific-set tale that elevates it above realist coming of age stories, while Nicola Davies, a well-known zoologist as well as an author, does not shy away from thick description of the ocean world, or the threats posed to it by human intervention. Nicola Kinnear's illustrations, meanwhile, are generously scattered throughout the book, making this a visually attractive as well as an exciting, worthy read." * The Irish Times * "Ariki is a strong and independent heroine; a perfect role model for children everywhere." * BookTrust * "Nicola Davies is one of our finest writers for children about the natural world [...] This is an elegantly told story about difference and acceptance and standing up for what you believe in." * The Sunday Times Culture * "Nicola Davies is one of our finest writers for children about the natural world [...] This is an elegantly told story about difference and acceptance and standing up for what you believe in." * The Sunday Times Culture *
