“A Fine Day on the Bay is a charming story that delivers crucial lessons…The illustrations in the book are endearing and bright, and the book teaches children about the importance of caring for our natural world.” BethanyCousins, Amazon reviewer 

“Creating relatable characters is one trick to captivating an audience. With four books chock-full of personable organisms such as Olly the Oyster and Mallory the Forgetful Duck, Crofton author Elaine Allen has accomplished this, bringing young boys and girls into her seafaring world.” Zach Sparks, Arundel Voice

“Author Elaine Ann Allen, a Marylander, gives young readers a unique glimpse into what goes on under water. Think glass-bottom boat in the form of a book with a good message.” SpinSheet, Chesapeake Bay Sailing
