In this touching story, a girl and an octopus unexpectedly connect over feeling small in a big world.

Coral has big dreams about grand adventures—but it’s hard to go after these big dreams when you’re the smallest in the class and feel completely invisible. During a school trip to the aquarium, Coral finds a kindred spirit in Kraken, a small octopus who knows that being invisible isn’t always a bad thing.
When Coral finds herself in the aquarium after everyone else goes home, she learns that being seen isn’t always about how big you are.

Praise For…

"Yulo distills a difficult, relatable concept—even the small and seemingly unseen have a light to shine—into a digestible story for young readers. The illustrations deftly use background color to distinguish between the white expanse of the aquarium and the solid black darkness of Kraken’s habitat . . . Concise and effective storytelling brings the invisible to light." —Kirkus

"The technicolor images of people and fishcontrast with the black background and evoke the feeling of a darkened aquarium, and the varied perspectives effectively convey Coral’s feelings of smallness." —BCCB
