Customer Reviews

“[A] fun adult debut . . . readers will enjoy this breezy romp.”

— Library Journal

“[A] richly imagined maritime world.”

— Kirkus Reviews

“Like a Mary Roach but with a solid scientific background to her credit, Horowitz is a skilled investigative reporter who takes readers into unfamiliar worlds, shares her experiences there, asks probing questions, and makes those worlds come alive. Dog owners curious about the lives of their pets will savor this book, but it deserves a wider audience than just animal lovers.”
