Special give-away! The author will randomly select 5 customers who place pre-orders here to receive a crushed Styrofoam cup that has gone to the seafloor on Alvin. Special thanks to Bruce Strickrott, Manager of the Alvin Group for making this possible. The author and illustrator will draw on the cups before they go and they will be marked with the dive number so you can see where they went. (See some cool examples shrunken cups here:
