About the Book:
Suffering sea monsters! Can Hubert brave the storm?
Meet Rainbow Reef’s fabulous fish kids: Aiden, the panicky pufferfish, Sparky the doggone friendly dogfish, Olga the eight-legged bully, her little sister Red, and Hubert, a tiny hermit crab with Skyfall ambitions. He wants to be a superspy, but the sea harbors monsters, ghosts, and worse.
When Hubert and friends play hide-and-seek in the spooky Kelp Forest, Red Octopus gets lost. With a storm raging, can Hubert bring her home safely?
Finding a tiny octopus in the ocean is trickier than detecting one grain of sand on the beach. Fortunately, Hubert has a secret weapon. Read about it in The Hunt for Red Octopus.
Kids and adults will enjoy Hubert’s laugh-out-loud adventures. The Hunt for Red Octopus was released on July 31st, 2021.

Apricot Banks (Maaja Wentz) writes fun books for kids that adults like too. A teacher-librarian, she loves sharing funny adventures to inspire a love of reading. Each book includes games and jokes in the back so that children can enjoy themselves offline.
Maaja’s first novel, Feeding Frenzy: Curse of the Necromancer, was chosen as a Featured Story by Wattpad and then went on to win a Watty award.
Moved by school closures last spring, Maaja recorded a read-aloud to allow children to follow along with the complete text of the first book in the Saltwater Spy Series, Marina Royale. Watch it on YouTube.
