“Ocean Blue: Delphi Island” is skillfully written as it is thought-provoking and not just a statement on the necessity of environmental awareness.

Fun and conservation come together in the spirited, new chapter book by author and primary school teacher, Mia Matic. Underscoring lessons in environmental awareness and activism, “Ocean Blue: Delphi Island” (published by Balboa Press) presents a lively story that speaks of faith, courage and the power of friendship.

In “Ocean Blue: Delphi Island,” readers meet William Taylor. William lives with his parents in Allymera Bay, famous for its spectacular sunsets and beautiful beaches. He’s enjoying his summer because he gets to spend plenty of time out on the water, swimming and surfing. He knows these waters like the back of his hand – or so he thinks.

One day, he befriends two bottlenose dolphins named Silva and Bubbles – and they need his help. Suddenly, William’s usually quiet world is turned upside down by his new friends.

“Ocean Blue: Delphi Island” is skillfully written as it is thought-provoking and not just a statement on the necessity of environmental awareness. With a creative yet insightful approach, Matic gives young readers a delightful, present day story with lessons in green stewardship.

“I wanted to write a book that was fun and engaging,” notes Matic. “Apart from enjoyment in reading ‘Ocean Blue: Delphi Island,’ hopefully the book raises readers’ awareness of their environment and promotes a desire to be in harmony with our world. I also hope that readers are inspired and believe that anything is possible, that they just need to have the courage to stand up for what they believe in.”
