Picture Editor, Smithsonian Magazine
Undercurrent
Fishy Friends, A Journey Through the Coral Kingdom is a perfect way to share your passion of the underwater world with that special child. With excellent pictures of sand divers and octopus and scorpionfish illustrating a powerful yet entertaining conservation message, this is a great addition to any child's library. As the picture editor of Smithsonian Magazine says, "Michael O'Neill's images in Fishy Friends have a unique blend of clarity, color, and behavior, so important to catching the interest of children, the future steward of our planet." The clownfish images are sure to resonate with any youngster who saw Saving Nemo.
Sport Diver Magazine
Fishy Friends is an underwater adventure story told by the creatures that live in the sea. It is geared toward elementary school children and aims to educate them on the need to preserve marine life. Charlie the crab, the cartoon narrator of this tale, can be found on every page next to a photo and first-person description of the problems these creatures face and of the lives they lead that are worth saving.
Freshwater & Marine Aquarium Magazine
Fishy Friends presents a coral kingdom journey magically through the eyes of a child...The book's sensational photography is second to none. Photographs of this quality are rarely found in children's publications and truly make this book a benchmark...Fishy Friends is not just another children's book; it is a wonderful story with an inspirational message
Miami Magazine
From conch to clownfish, anemones to octopi, underwater photographer Michael Patrick O'Neill introduces young readers to the colorful cast of characters that live in the ocean. Fishy Friends identifies each larger-than-life creature and explains its typical behavior in the marine environment. The vivid photographs also carry important messages about the fragility of the oceans and the urgent need to protect them.
Nature's Best Magazine
A cartoon crab named Charlie is our tour guide for this wonderful exploration of the coral reef. The book, a perfect mix of great photography and interesting facts, offers a fun way to learn about life under the sea. Beautiful images take you up close and personal with the inhabitants of the coral reef, from the weird to the wondrous, while well-chosen words provide interesting and entertaining lessons about marine life. The delightful photographs and easy format guarantee that kids will read this book again and again, providing many opportunities to meet the denizens of the deep and connect with the world under the waves.
From The Critics
O'Neill's artistry shows all manner of underwater creatures, from the familiar to the truly weird: a decorator crab that hides itself by planting anemones on its back, the camouflaged sand diver and many more. He even nabbed a shot of a rare leatherback turtle covered with remoras...The end of the book offers a few cautions about how the reef and its inhabitants are endangered by the carelessness of humans. Some lucky kids in Palm Beach County, FL have had the pleasure of meeting O'Neill, who offers classroom programs on the ocean and underwater photography.
South Florida Parenting
Chattooga Press
Fishy Friends is a great educational tool for teachers and parents...It's a fascinating book for children to learn about the ocean and how important it is to keep it clean...
Nashville News
This is a beautiful and well-humored account of life in the sea...Sea animals seem to come alive as you look at each page. Children and adults will really love reading this book.
