A great addition to any child's book collection! Younger kids will love the beautiful illustrations by marine scientist Jessica, and older ones will enjoy reading Sue's charming tale about nature's reconquest of an abandoned oil rig. Along the way, they will learn how underwater creatures struggle to overcome the obstacles humans throw their way, and even pick up a few Cajun French phrases. Highly recommended!

It was my pleasure to bring the characters of Sue's story to life through illustration. The story brought tears to my eyes more than once and filled my heart with joy as I was let into the civilization of Castor Oil Rig. It was so much fun to animate the faces of the sea creatures I have loved and studied throughout my scientific career. I tried my best to make a shrimp seem shy, a barracuda seem friendly, and a young sea turtle beam with naive optimism. Enjoy!

I recently completed reading Castor Oil Rig Tales to my 6 1/2 year old grandson. It was a wonderful experience reading him a chapter each day and then discussing the new sea creatures from that chapter. We even picked up a few French words and looked up their meanings. The book was a wonderful childrens book but it was enjoyable to me as well.

Starting with the oil spill causing the sea creatures to find a new home to giving multiple examples of how the environment impacts the fish population

An English teacher at my high school in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania took an interest in the assignments I produced for his class and encouraged me to keep writing. I was to have a forty-three year career as a medical technologist at the Altoona Hospital laboratory before I took him seriously. My life may seem odd kindling for a story about sea creatures in the Gulf of Mexico. But not really. My ...more
