Imagination, dreams, the power to create, the innovative ability to entertain oneself and to do so without the benefit of technology. In this fast-paced world of electronic entertainment, this is something that is quickly disappearing from the realm of young people. And, in so doing, they are missing out on so much.

Camellia N. is not afraid to use her imagination. She loves to dream, to create and to entertain herself. And, in so doing, she is also opening her mind to a world of wonderful new t

Combining creativity, color, intrigue, and adventure Debbie Wideroe transports young readers to our final frontier, the depths of the ocean. Reviving her wide-eyed, inquisitive heroine, Camellia N, Wideroe playfully demonstrates why our ocean ecosystems and residents are delightfully interesting and amusing. This is a must-have for parents who think it important for their children to consider their future super power to be knowledge

Fantastic book As an environmentalist, we need to educate our youth on the importance of preservation and conservation. The Adventures of Camellia N. Under the Sea sheds light on some of our ocean’s most endangered species and helps young children learn why we need to take care of them. I have no doubt this series will make a difference and help educate future generations of change leaders.

As a parent and educator, I love how Camellia N.’s adventures both “educate
and entertain.” This book is a true delight to read and is quickly becoming
my childs favorite bedtime adventure story. Every time we read the
book, we discover more and more about the sea and all its amazing sea
creatures. My daughter loves the book and especially Oscar, the little box fish who accompanies Camellia along the way. I highly recommend this book (and
series) to any parent or teacher looking to open their childre

The Adventures of Camellia N. “Under the Sea”, is a sharp sequel to, “The Arctic.” Again, the lead character Camellia N. takes any reader on an exciting and educational adventure. Camellia N. has really befriended adults and children readers with her intelligent and warming attitude. The writing is free and absorbing and clear-cut. The illustrations are engaging and the color schematics invite you onto each page. I’m very fond of the ocean so I appreciate this book with a deeper meaning. We need ...more

I’ve had the pleasure of reading both The Adventures of Camellia N. books. I love these books because they are a creative way to engage children with the environment and an opportunity for them to learn about our planet. Camellia N. allows readers of all ages to experience landscapes they might not be familiar with and learn more about its inhabitants. I was captivated by its lovely characters such as Nails, the hammerhead shark that helps Camellia N. along her journey through the ocean. I am in ...more

“Under the Sea” is an outstanding book for young children. Debra Wideroe sends a strong message to her readers, not only about the environment, but about gender equality. I love that Camellia’s father tucks her in bed, and that the submarine Commander is a woman. I also love that Camellia is a fearless little girl curious about the world around her. The writing is as colorful as the illustrations and is suitable for every age. I highly recommend this book.

As a diver, I am delighted to find a children's book that so elegantly emphasizes our effect on the underwater world. It inspires and sparks interest in sea life as Camellia meets endangered species such as hammerhead sharks and sea turtles. The book is fun for kids while also introducing them to environmental concerns. I would recommend it to all children who love our planet!

The illustrations and overall story make this book an absolute joy to read! Camellia N.’s snarky personality, along with her curiosity and itch for adventure, takes your kids on a fun and educational ride. I ended up learning a couple things myself (ha ha). I can’t recommend this book enough!
