Praise For…


“A beautifully illustrated dopamine hit of octopus facts… The point that the depths of the ocean still remain as unknown as outer space is made gorgeously throughout the book by Michèle Ganser’s star-spangled, otherworldly illustrations. Dive in and be amazed.” — The Times, Children’s Book of the Week (UK)
