"A diverse picture book, filled with tropical colours and cleverly informing readers about Dugongs, a species which is threatened with extinction." * Mamma Filz * "A truly beautiful, imaginative and heart-soaring tale." * Read It, Daddy * "Francesca Chessa's glorious illustrations are full of life and colour, beautiful representations of ocean life that complement the delightful story to perfection." * Parents in Touch * "Beautifully portrayed in richly coloured scenes and told with gentle humour, this slice of tropical life will delight and amuse young listeners - it's a treat to read aloud. There is however a serious side to the book: the final page gives factual information about Dugongs explaining how their seagrass habitat is being destroyed, thus placing the creatures on the list of vulnerable species." * Red Reading Hub * "This is a great book about kindness and linked a lot to our recent fundraising efforts for endangered animals. It's a fun read and one that we've shared a lot this last couple of months." * Let Them be Small * "This playful frolic in tropical waters is a gentle introduction to the concept of chosen identity and respect for others' choices." * Kirkus Reviews * "The children and the dugong are constantly active - so that the picture book feels alive and exuberant." * Minerva Reads *
