Mike's books have been shortlisted twice for the Royal Society Young People's Book Prize. Mike lives in Twickenham, near London. There is lots more information about him and his work on his website. Kate Daubney lives by the sea in North Devon, England with her partner Roger and her scruffy sidekick, Taz the dog. After graduating with a degree in illustration, she has worked on numerous children's books, using both digital and traditional media to create her colourful and quirky illustrations. When she's not busy illustrating she loves nothing more than riding her bike or taking a walk across the local beach, where Taz the dog enjoys chasing the seagulls!
James loved the books - they are bright and engaging with lots to look at. Each doublepage spread links to the next set of pages as you make your way further down or deeper under the sea. There is so much to look at, making them perfect for little ones, and the labels on the pictures would be good for slightly older children learning letters and sounds. These books are fabulous for boys and girls alike!

This book is bright and colourful with great pictures. Each double page spread links to the set of double pages as you make your way further down, deeper under the sea. There is a lot to look at, perfect for little people, but then there are also labels on the pictures which would be good for slightly older children learning their letters and sounds. The lovely blue colour of the pages gets darker and darker as you go deeper and deeper beneath the sea, eventually ending up at a pirate shipwreck. The last page cleverly folds out to take you back up to the surface. James loved the book – it is bright and engaging with lots to look at, keeping him entertained. The pictures and labels are thoughtful and logical and so the book is fabulous for little ones – whether boys or girls.
