"Tallec's depiction of this underwater world is breathtaking; he seamlessly integrates photographs of reeds, water lilies, frogs and ducks with his original artwork. Each page has depth, light, color and density."—School Library Journal

"Would that every child have as wonderful an imagination as Gus, who in the meantime can serve as their role model."—Kirkus Reviews
