“I loved learning about how the ocean is in trouble.” Tess, age 6


Join best friends Katy, Cassie and Zia on a series of amazing adventures as they work together to save the planet… 

On the hottest day of the year, the friends imagine a water slide coming out of Katy’s bedroom window. As they plunge into an underwater world, they can’t wait to explore.

But when they meet a dolphin in distress, they realise the ocean is in big trouble. It’s so full of plastic that the sea creatures have been forced to flee their homes. Can the friends come up with a plan to put things right?

The story is told with pace and commitment and the characters and personalities will swiftly capture the attention of newly independent readers. But the dangers from discarded plastic for the birds and fish for whom the ocean is home is not hidden and the final pages have information about the oceans, pollution and how to reduce it.’
