Kerry Keegan and Li Liu both receive a standing ovation for such an incredible way of introducing the beauty of our oceans to a whole new generation, in a story that can be told for many generations to come. Hearting With Herman belongs on every bookshelf which prides itself on high-quality reads. There is no doubt in my mind that young audiences around the world aged 5-12 will be captivated by this exotic journey under the sea.
