Helen’s new book has been very well-reviewed:

'Helen Scales is first and foremost a marine biologist, but she has a natural gift for storytelling ... I’ll never be able to walk past a seashell again without picking it up and examining it.' Mark Carwardine

'There is rich detail in all directions. One does not know what will come next. Often the descriptions made me see shafts of sunlight underwater, irradiating extraordinary places and creatures. That is just what the book does itself.’    The Guardian
