Praise For…


“Ruzzier leaves no stone (or pebble!) unturned in his search for the perfect friendship tale.” — Kirkus Reviews

Reading comes easy when comics and sea critters come in fun packages. — Kirkus Reviews

For transitional readers, a great “first” graphic novel offering tidy etiquette lessons and brimming with wit. — School Library Journal

Unlikely duos sorting out how to have fun together are a staple of the beginning reader genre, and this story has added depth in its assertion that sometimes the best way to play is to go with the flow. — Horn Book Magazine

The understated plot allows new readers to focus on the well-chosen words and meaningful emotional arc, and Ruzzier’s slightly bonkers visual world-building keeps things fresh. — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Fish and Sun are two delightful characters who will touch readers’ hearts. The perfect story for emergent readers and developing visual learners.School Library Journal (starred review)

A captivating new duo.  — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Uncluttered watercolor illustrations, in Ruzzier’s always imaginative, slightly off-kilter style, reinforce the playful action; the natural language and phonetic patterns will serve readers well; and the emotional drama is just right. — Horn Book (starred review)
