“Beautifully written and illustrated children’s book with a good message. This book will spark lots of imagination and interest for children; adults will enjoy it too.” ~ Sharon Cummings [FIVE STARS]

“What a delightful book for youngsters! The author’s presentation of the ‘good vs evil’ dilemma is introduced to young readers in an understandable and entertaining way. The illustrations compliment the story well and their bright colors would keep the attention of even pre-readers.” ~ Chaos Arts Reviews [FIVE STARS]

“This is an entertaining little book, which captures shades of the wild west in the deep blue sea. There is plenty of action with the capture and rescue of Sweet Sarah Sue. The moral issue is defined when wrong is punished and justice prevails. The illustrations are well done and capture the essence of the story.” ~ Iwanna Frizzell, Educator [FIVE STARS]
