Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1 ):

Sometimes it takes only one clever idea to launch a comic, and the setup for this graphic novel is a winner. Creator Dan Santat takes a ridiculous idea and makes it work marvelously, as ocean creatures inhabit a diving suit to rescue a theme park's captive marine life. High-energy hijinks ensue, all choreographed for maximum laughs. Few readers will be able to resist the over-the-top action and heart-tugging quieter moments.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
