Unwrapping Some Illustrations 

The Book

This is a delightful book about a bioluminescent squid that can twirl and dance.  The faster he twirls the brighter he glows.  How fancy!  His fans love his performances and he revels in their attention and adoration. The other fish are mesmerized by his ability to glow and want Glow to teach them how it's done.  In return they will reciprocate by teaching things him that they excel at.  He selfishly refuses because he wants the limelight all for himself.  

One day while performing and trying to gain more fans his glow fades. He retreats in shame to the lower depths of the ocean to hide.  It's a dark creepy place and he feels lonely and scared.  Will the friends he rejected come to his rescue and will Glow change his attitude and accept their help and teach them how to glow too?  

The illustrations are colourful and expressive. Glow learns a very valuable life lesson... a real friend shares and appreciates his friends.  The author includes additional facts about squids at the end of the book.  Love the book and highly recommend it!
