Meet the crew for the Super Sonic Sunny Sub. They go on adventures and missions to save the oceans. This project was going to be, at least in my mind, a stunning book series. By making the books thrilling, I wanted to engage children in caring about the oceans.

Ziggy the cat is the engineer. She works out problems that occurred during the missions and fixes the super sub when needed.

Woof the dog is the outside element that is summoned to the super sub when there is a problem. He is a good swimmer and can leave the sub to swim about dealing with the issues.

Ernest the gecko is the diary keeper. He also speaks all the different dialects of the sea animals and translates for the others.

Captain Frank the puffin is the captain, navigator and sees to the charts and maps.

While trying out their different images, I dropped them onto one of my ocean backgrounds to see how they looked.

If you want to see them on their mission, you will have to check out my TBT next Thursday. You can see the first four TBTs showing this book here.
