"Jumping conch shells! Have I got a tale for you!"

So begins the account of the battle for Higgins Hole by its most noble historian and poet laureate, Petronius the seahorse. Tucked away from the powerful currents of the ocean, Higgins Hole is home to a peaceful community of quirky sea creatures--until a vicious pack of great white sharks, led by the ferocious Tacitus, invades. Lutus, the Hole's sage lobster leader, and Apollo, the sea turtle diplomat, appeal to the Oceanic Council for help, while General Integritus, the courageous military commander, does his best to protect the Hole. Yet in the end, it will be up to the Hole's inhabitants to rid their waters of the intruders, with the aid of the legendary Flying Dolphin Squadron and a helping hand from the mysterious depths of the abyss.

A comical adventure that celebrates loyalty, leadership, identity, and the triumph of community over violent forces of change.

This book is good for your brain because:
Fiction, fantasy, community, democracy, ocean life.
