.. the pull of the ocean and its everchanging tides are home to an abstract cast of characters, so when daytime fish hide, the nightshift begins: “As I lay my head to sleep, The colour blue began to seep, Inside my mind, inside my soul, Feeling weightless, lost control.” … a story told in beautiful hand-painted silks and poetic style suitable for children of all ages.

“Words alone can’t do justice to the magic and beauty of underwater worlds. Kim’s new hand-painted picture book will appeal to readers of all ages.”
