About the Book

As a young green sea turtle, Just Kate travels the oceans in love with her underwater world but saddened by her life alone. That is until the day she decides to make a friend and chooses a very unlikely campanion--an octopus named Cecil. Just Kate: Finding Friendship combines themes of courage and kindness, and of being open to new possibilities. The story will inspire children to ask questions about marine life, conservation, and the responsibilities we must embrace to care for the natural world. But the most important lesson that Just Kate and Cecil have to impart is this: That in their world, as in ours, we do not have to be alike or like the same things to be friends. We simply have to be there for one another.
