Praise For…


*"This impressive and eloquent tale is recommended for all picture book collections."
— School Library Journal, starred review

"Lanan’s watercolor and gouache paintings are expansive and cinematic…a compelling tale worth sharing.”
— Horn Book Magazine

"Lanan’s cinematic storytelling pace never flags. She distills the global problem of sea life trapped by nets into a tightly focused narrative in which those who caused the damage are able to save the animal they hurt."
— Publishers Weekly

"Lanan's wordless narrative pulls viewers right into the choppy waves of her gouache-and-watercolor world…This compelling fictional introduction raises awareness and empathy for a very real environmental problem.”
— Kirkus Reviews
