Through a series of adventures, three children learn about the diversity of life in the sea. Along the way they overcome prejudice and witness the scars of war. They also discover the unique value of their individual lives and the eternal bonds of friendship that connect all humanity. “How can anyone be enemies,” asks one of the children, “if it’s only the sea in between that makes us different?”

Brian Wildsmith works his color magic on the tropical seas and fishes that provide the setting for this tale.

Over the Deep Blue Sea is also available in Japanese, Korean, Chinese (traditional and simplified versions), Dutch, German, Tagalog, and Spanish.
