The Mellops Go Diving for Treasure by Tomi Ungerer

A pirate story with a meaningful twist starring the lovable Mellops family


As with the other Mellops books there is always something for children to learn about - diving, the equipment used and what creatures they find on the ocean bed. -Outside In, Inside Out Charming... Printed on thick mat paper, with a two-colour palette true to the author and artist Tomi Ungerer's original artwork, the books make delightful bedtime reading for the under-sevens. - Daily Telegraph If you look at the work of Tomi Ungerer, it's passionate, it's personal, it's marvelous and it's cuckoo, and it's that kind of veracity that's always made for good children's literature. -The New York Times
