Call of the Bobfish

Call of the Bobfish
Deep down in the magical world beneath the waves, the wise and ancient Blobfish needs help. He gathers together a jumbly bunch of sea creatures and sends them on a quest to bring a person all the way down to his home at the deep blue bottom of the sea. 

Trouble is on the way and Prawn, Swordfish and Leafy Sea Dragon are some of the characters that must overcome their fears and work together in order to protect their ocean home.

Each creature in this quirky crew is both help and hindrance…….

Can they overcome their differences and work as a team? How will they get a person to the very bottom of the ocean? And can Blobfish save them all from the great unknown?

Suitable for 4-11 year olds.
