About the Book

A beautifully lyrical and inspirational picture book about being present and loving who you are, from Jessica Olien, the author/illustrator of Adrift, The Blobfish Book, and Shark Detective.

What are you?

You’re big and small and loud and quiet. You are right now. And you are perfect.

A touching ode to the importance of individuality, respect, and self-love, just right for fans of The Wonderful Things You Will Be and The OK Book.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“Simple and reassuring...A lovely addition to social-emotional curricula and for one-on-one sharing.” - School Library Journal

Praise for ADRIFT: “[With a] tongue-in-cheek text…[this is] an offbeat selection for Valentine’s Day...sneak this one into a primary-grade science unit.” - Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review)

Praise for ADRIFT: “The simple storyline and art complement each other as readers are gently guided to comprehend the folly of judging a book by its cover.” - Kirkus Reviews

Praise for THE BLOBFISH BOOK: “Delivers big laughs.” - Publishers Weekly

Praise for SHARK DETECTIVE: “Delightful…the story is strangely inspirational...Many readers will demand further adventures-or imagine them for themselves.” - Kirkus Reviews

Praise for SHARK DETECTIVE: “Nothing slows the determination of chip-munching Shark in this lively romp through the mean streets. He’s one cool sleuth.” - School Library Journal

Praise for SHARK DETECTIVE: “Shark is an endearing goofball worth rooting for.” - Publishers Weekly
