''A gloriously wacky story' 'it will bring back the magic of a perfect holiday by the sea." * Amanda Craig, The Times *
"An eccentric, quirky adventure, which marries the very different talents of Reeve and McIntyre to fabulous effect. Exuberant artwork, crazy characters and chattering sea monkeys ahoy." * Fiona Noble, Bookseller *
"Marvellous maritime adventure. Dive in for lots of fun." * Sally Morris, The Daily Mail *
"One of those books that you just keep reading as you are absorbed in one unlikely and hilarious escapade after another. Wonderful fun, endlessly imaginative and superbly illustrated by Sarah McIntyre." * Parents in Touch *
"Zesty, zany and fun. Humour and detail abound in both the text and artwork, making this book a sheer delight." * Michelle Pauli, Standout Books for Children, Guardian *
"This story is about as far as you can get from an 'issues book', and yet it would bring comfort and strength to children suffering from bullying or needing glasses. One of those books that stay with its readers, internally and externally, for life." * Pippa Goodhart *
Beautifully illustrated and crisply written... this is a lovely book to hold, let alone read. * Jamie Thomson, Big Issue in Scotland *
'It is a great adventure with brilliant characters.' * William Abreu, age 10, in Guernsey Press and Star *
