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. He quickly discovers that there are all kinds of fish in the deep blue sea—big and tiny, smooth and spiny, colorful and plain, different and the same. Join Adri as he travels the ever changing currents of the ocean and see if you can find your favorite rockfish among the waves!

I highly recommend this positive, engaging, colorful book for home, school and church libraries. It's a real page turner. You will love the main character, Adri who is a rockfish and how he begins to observe others around him. He begins to embrace all kinds of fish and their differences. The simple story offers a powerful message of love, friendship, uniqueness and acceptance. I like how Adri's parents proclaim a benediction over their son with such love and grace. My favorite line, "Life is a grand journey, Adri," Mama said. "You be you." A very nurturing and affirming book that is excellent for everyone's self esteem.
