"The beautifully designed illustrations portray the ocean and marine life that thrives below the surface.  I love how Russell explains the difference between introverts, extroverts, and ambiverts in a way that will encourage young readers to rust their preferences and be content with being themselves."

Zelda is a mantis shrimp.  She wanted to know where the bluefin tuna came from, where they were going, what wonders they had seen. Manta rays gliding over the lip of deep-sea canyons. Humpback whales migrating north for winter. Seagrass meadows hiding weedy sea dragons. Dugong grazing in the shallows. She swam quickly toward the surface.


‘Here I am, down here! Wait for me!’ she yelled.


Being Zelda dives into the world of mantis shrimps, bluefin tuna and the synchronised coral spawning events triggered by the moon each year.


It introduces kids to introvert, extrovert, and ambivert personality type concepts and how to discover their own preferences.


A beautifully illustrated, fun, educational read for ages 8 and above.
