Mike just taught me how to tie a bowline knot. I learned about these knots when doing research for my new book “Bay State Skye.” (due to be released in May, 2018) They’re used by fishermen to tie their boats to pylons because once tied, the loop doesn’t tighten. Mike learned how to tie bowline knots in the Boy Scouts. It’s really fun once you get the hang of it. Grab a piece of rope and give it a try!
Alex has made her life’s ambition to draw illustrations of ocean life in an effort to “get the public excited and engaged in (marine) science in hopes that it will inspire a desire to learn more and become better informed.” I couldn’t have said it better myself! This is why I’ve written and will continue writing fun and informative illustrated children’s books about marine life. Take a listen. (Video by BBC Earth)
