"Oscar is a highly respected marine biologist. His unpretentious thoughts on sardine sandwiches, which became a published paper, now have him lecturing across the globe and making celebrity appearances on reality TV shows. He doesn’t really know how he ended up where he is in life. It all started with a near-death incident with a coughing squid, and now it looks like his blog has gone viral and his Friday night fish-tank cleaning ritual is no longer sacred." (Kerry Lord, Edward's Menagerie Birds, 2015)
