This book has some beautiful pictures that will take you underneath the sea and into the life of a little eel with bright dreams above. This story in a sense can be the companion to "The Little Mermaid" where instead of a happy ending in High Above the eel finds the true dangers of ignoring his mother even for the seductive glittery beauty he views above.

The writing is poetic and simple enough while being very detailed so you are truly brought to be under the sea. The adult reader will be able to relate to everything the eel goes through in a sense so it can be used to start a discussion about the dangers that surround us. ( )
