Pluto the Starfish Offers Children Charming New Undersea Adventure


Teeming with vivid imagery and touching lessons this tale of the sea is fit for children from age 1 to 101.

Denver CO and St. Croix US Virgin Islands  – From Lolita the Latina Leatherback Turtle to Nancy the Nurse Shark the friends of Pluto the Starfish show him just how valuable he is to them. The juvenile children’s book from author Bonnie M. Anderson is a lesson on differences and similarities that will appeal to children of all ages. The newly release book is published by Outskirts Press.

It’s a beautiful day in the crystal blue waters surrounding Buck Island. This magical undersea world with its glittering rainbow of colors and fine sparkling sand is home to Pluto the Starfish a being who at the moment is feeling sad and confused. While many of his friends can swim gracefully and swiftly – some can even breathe air and move about on land and others are large and fierce-looking – Pluto can’t even swim! It takes him all day to move just two feet through the sand near the coral reef.

Pluto wonders why he is so different. Why can’t he do more things like most of the other underwater creatures? What is his purpose? What Pluto doesn’t immediately realize is that he has good friends—like Lolita and Nancy—who teach him that everyone is important and each being is wonderfully different. Pluto’s group of ocean friends offer sage advice and love eventually helping the sad little starfish understand where he fits in their world.

At the heart of the story is the love and concern of friends for one another. They all respect one another and each applauds their differences and their similarities. Pluto the Starfish is a charming lushly illustrated book that not only encourages children to discuss their feelings and fears but it also teaches young readers respect and care for the spectacular and varied inhabitants of our waters. It’s a must-read story with moral lessons that are appropriate for children and adults alike.
