“Featuring appealing characters; accessible, age-appropriate language; engaging dialogue; and an exciting story, this book ably introduces children to marine ecology. It is informative and entertaining as it highlights the role of sea kelp forests in providing food, shelter, a place to hide from predators, and safety from storms. As the sea otter’s desperate situation unfolds, his important role in keeping the sea urchin population under control is revealed— as are the dangers that marine debris pose to the ocean’s inhabitants and delicate ecosystems.”
