"The cheery, doodle-like depictions... are perfectly in keeping with the breezy, warm-hearted tone. Sam and Jade's friendship, which is changing as they approach tweendom, adds a nice dose of realism."
"This fun book contains lots of cool marine biology and oceanography tidbits for budding surfers... and future scientists! Surfing is an amazing way to enjoy the ocean, and the more you know, the better a guest you'll be to the wonderful creatures that live there."
