Awards & Accolades

"Law has taken the traditional folk song and tweaked the words slightly so that it is a vehicle for teaching about the marine food chain.... The gouache and collage illustrations picture a bright and sunny underwater world, with vivid shifting shades of blue. A nice addition with a dual purpose" — School Library Journal

“A wonderful classroom and performance resource. The illustrations are full of colour and detail - super opportunities for children to create their own artwork” — Parents in Touch
