Abby in the press

Hi Sea Fans!

It's so exciting, Cape Town Kids website has reviewed my book and it's looking good!  Here's what they had to say:

"This is the first in a new series of books about Abby, written by marine biologist Heidi de Maine and illustrated by Keli Hazelton. Abby’s story is different from most other children’s books about animals in that it introduces not only exotic sea creatures, but also an insight into the world of people who work inside the aquarium. Although it is aimed at new readers (age 6-10), it captivated my 4-year old and I really enjoyed reading it. Useful facts and fun ‘quirks’ about each fish or animal is presented in a language that is easy to understand but also leaves space for more exploration. We had fun answering the questions at the back of the book and both learned something new, and want to test our knowledge at our next visit to the aquarium. Because the book introduces only a small selection of animals and leaves a strong sense of being part of a bigger series, we are now really looking forward to the next book!"

I guess this means that we'll have to get book 2 out soon! : )  Keep an eye on this space and I'll let you know how it's going.

Have a great week Sea Fans and let me know what you think by leaving comments or taking the survey on the right hand side of the blog - only 6 days left to add your voice to this survey.
