Petra-X I want to read this. I hope you review it soon.

Debbie "DJ" I tried to listen to the audio version of this one Diane. Sadly, the author herself read it as if reading to four year olds. Do you think the book catered to more of a YA audience?

Petra-X I'm going to get the print one then. Ta Debbie!

Diane S ☔ Ii didn't think so, Debbie. Was not scholarly by any means but was presented in an easier and friendly way, which I liked since I knew nothing of these creatures. Probably will review this weekend, Petra sinceI'm a little behind in my reviews.

PorshaJo Nice review. I am going to check this one out as I'm fascinated by sea life.

Jen Sweet review....I love the title. It's neat when someone is so passionate about something and bring a new life and meaning to those of us who are so ignorant. Sounds like a charming read :)

Jennifer Excellent review. I'm looking forward to reading this one, too. I've had the opportunity to meet Sy as she was the guest speaker at an event I organized. Not only is she a terrific writer, but she's a great speaker, and passionate about the natural world.
