Editorial Reviews

"One of the most unusual picture books I’ve come across. First, it is nonfiction—it’s about the real world but it’s a part of the real world that is hidden from most people—the meadows of seagrass that form a habitat in the shallow areas of the oceans where sunlight reaches the ocean floor. Second, Hanes’s language is poetic and sophisticated, challenging the listener who is at an age when he or she is open to hearing new words and new meanings...will make a visit to an aquarium a more meaningful experience for both parent and child."--Vicki Cobb - The Huffington Post
