"The story has a big heart."
"This charming story with clever cartoon illustrations presents the important concepts of co-operation and taking care of each other through taking care of the environment. It focuses on some of the challenges facing our oceans. All of this is delivered in a fun way. This book differs from many typical picture books in that it has a full story, not just a slight story about a single idea. This book should delight and engage many young readers."

"Canada LOVES Gizmo"
"I bought the book for my twin 7 year old grandkids. They immediately loved Gizmo. Gizmo could be president for the entire world because of his outlook, insight and pawsitivity. He cares about our planet and as a surfer understands that our oceans are essential to our kids’ future. He has his paw on the pulse of the planet and Canada loves him!"

"This book is AMAZING!"
"I bought this book to give as a gift and was curious to read it. First of all, I am a graphic art student who aspires to be a forever kid. What I found most surprising is the book is fun to read, with awesome illustrations, and an important message. Gizmo is a little surfer pup with a big heart for protecting our sea life and oceans. He definitely wins my vote!"
"Easy to read and understand with the right learning message."
"Although my daughter is 10 and an advanced reader (grade 5 level) she enjoyed the book, message and characters, especially the dog, Gizmo. The book is well written and illustrated, with a good blend of fun, humor and social messaging. Would recommend it for all young ages and all types of kids. It’s a book kids can read alone, aloud or read to!"
