This book teaches children science through an illustrated story focusing on Sepio, a baby Hawain bobtail squid, and Ali, a Vibrio fischeri bacterium. Sepio is not able to glow when he hatches from his egg, and needs Ali’s help. Can Ali and Sepio help each other? 

Not only does the book contain a lovely story with beautiful images, it also features a breakdown of the science, such as how bacteria talk to each other, and what the inside of a squid looks like.

This book is written to delight and captivate primary school aged readers.
