Meet Gill, a flashy nudibranch (noo-de-brank) living a fierce and fascinating life in the ocean without a shell and completely . . .NAKED!
When a curious young snorkeler stumbles upon Gill, she learns there is more than meets the eye when it comes to her sassy new friend. This soft-bodied mollusk is anything but vulnerable, turning a diet of dangerous ocean creatures into a poisonous sting of its own. Found in unique shapes and colors in every ocean throughout the world, Gill and his diverse family of nudibranchs serve as a reminder that being small doesn’t mean you can’t have it all!
With illustrations as striking and colorful as Gill himself, this is an underwater adventure like no other where young readers can see for themselves what makes Gill and his fabulous family of nudibranchs tiny, but mighty poison powerhouses of the sea.

Thank you, Gnome Road Publishing, for the advance reading copy.
I find the illustrations really eye popping good. It will be fun for the young readers. The book is about the colourful world of the sea. It’s informative and perfect for the reading age group.
This was super cute! I learned quite a bit about nudibranches through the adorable and vibrant illustrations.
An extremely useful educational tool in regards to salt water ecosystems and species (including humans) working together to preserve nature. Bright and bold colors and playful illustrations complement the informative text. Recommended for toddlers and young elementary school students. Adorable!
LibraryThing Early Reviewer and Net Galley Feedback
I enjoyed reading this book so much between the random facts, the beautiful bright colors like a rainbow, the sound words, my 1 year old was enthralled with this book. Gill is a nudibranch a poisonous sea creature who is brightly colored but unable to see color.
Join Gill the Nudibranch as he tells you all about what a nudibranch is and how you can help save their habitat.
This was such a cute read. I’d never heard of a nudibranch before reading this title and learned a lot about them while reading it to my kids. If you have an animal lover, then this definitely belongs on your shelf.
Thank you NetGalley and Gnome Road Publishing for the chance to receive and review this book.
This book is funny and informative, such a great way to learn about ocean creatures. I love the use dialogues and short explanatory texts. I’ve never heard of the family of nudibranchs (noo-di-brank) before, let alone their anatomy, behaviour, diet and habitat, so I must say I learned a lot! I also appreciate the message about protecting coral reefs, where nudibranchs and many other creatures live. I think children would love a book like this, and adults like myself would find it equally fascinating too.
Thank you Gnome Road Publishing for this ARC.
We like that it was written almost like a comic, but was based in non-fiction. The pictures were bright and colorful and fun. We all learned about a fun new sea creature. This will be adopted for our classroom library. (Reviewed by Mrs. P and her 3rd and 4th graders)
