'Wonderfully strange and strangely wonderful... an epic dream captured in superbly meticulous detail' --Shaun Tan, author of The Arrival
'Absolutely breathtaking. A psychedelic odyssey. What a talent. The level of detail is phenomenal, so rich and textured it just drew me in. I wanted to go swim in the ocean and weave in and out of the creatures' -- Coralie Bickford-Smith, author of The Fox and the Star
'Intricate... transporting... This is a book to get lost in' -- Guardian
'Mind-boggling... Imagine Shaun Tan having an aquatic love child with Edward Gorey, from a family tree that includes Tim Burton, Salvador Dalí and Jacques Cousteau, and you'll begin to get the idea... There is danger, wonder, magic, surprise and awe. There are sea monsters and pearl divers' -- Brian Selznick, author of The Invention of Hugo Cabret
'A deliciously bewildering fantasy. Each page is potent with story in its own right and as a whole it builds into a surreal, dreamlike journey... The artwork is absolutely stunning' -- Pam Smy, author of Thornhill
'An exquisitely rendered world, full of beauty and wonder. Each page is a little masterpiece: one sad, one hopeful, one funny, one frightening - all wildly inventive' -- Juman Malouf, author of The Trilogy of Two

'Creepy, eerie, mysterious, beautiful, imaginative... Will hold up to endless hours of exploration' --A Word About Books
