About the Book:

Mabel isn't like the other mermaids. Lucky isn't like the other octopuses. But when they find each other, they discover that true friendship isn't about how you look, and that sometimes what we are searching for is right under our noses.


About the Author: 

Rowboat Watkins is somehow a dad, who likes to tell stories and draw...with kids. He doesn't believe in turtlenecks or boots, and is a recipient of the Sendak Fellowship and the Ezra Jack Keats New Illustrator Honor Award. Rowboat lives with his family (who have divergent opinions about footwear and shirts) in Brooklyn, NY, and shares a studio with three incredible picture book makers: Sophie Blackall, Brian Floca, and Doug Salati.
