"OK, kid! There are LOTS of books for youngsters about protecting our planet, so why does the world need another one?"

"OK! A "save our ocean" book by a kid for kids. I suppose it makes sense. So tell me about the story!"


With his pigeon pal Lucky at his side and his trusty whale steed beneath him, Connor and his lil' sis Mazi lead his all animal ocean crew on an all out quest to chase down and recover a large mass of balloons, heedlessly released by a shortsighted group of wedding-goers. Joined early in the adventure by a pod of helpful spinner dolphins, Connor and his companions encounter and rescue a diverse array of irresistibly charming ocean creatures who were unlucky enough to have run-ins with the deadly balloons. The story ends on a happy note with a newly formed team of ocean defenders united in their oath to shield against all things that threaten harm against the ocean. This call to action echoes out to the young reader, encouraging and showing them how to protect our ocean and all it's wondrous creatures within.


"Wow, that sounds amazing! Tell me more about this fascinating world and the characters we can expect to meet!"


 "So who in the heck are you kid, and why do you care so much about what happens to the ocean!?"

So you want to know why I care so much about the ocean, huh? Well it's told best by this short video...


"You have one heck of a great story there kid! Speaking of stories, who makes them up... You?

When we set out to create the ultimate children’s book series, we needed artwork that reached off the page, grabbed our young readers by their imagination, and dragged them giggling into my ocean world. A great illustrator just wouldn’t cut it. Simona Ceccarelli isn’t just one of the best character illustrators we could find...she’s nothing but the absolute best! We reached out, and were shocked to learn Simona was a fellow ocean lover and scuba diver, and really into our foundations environmental work. She has been a huge asset to our team and is the perfect person to bring the pages of this book to life.
