A companion book to the bestselling Only One You, Kranz once again uses her famous "rockfish" to express the themes of diversity, individuality, and acceptance to children. When Adri sets out to explore the ocean, he has no idea how colorful the world is.

Join Adri as he travels the ever changing currents of the ocean and see if you can find your favorite rockfish among the waves!
