Really lovely story about finding yourself after loss, caring for others, and how global warming is affecting the coral reef.
Hints at a f/f romance

As she learns of the effect her town has on these sea creatures she decides to take responsibility for protecting the ocean and her friends.
I have enjoyed Katie O'Neill in the past and instantly recognized her trademark art style in Aquico ...more
This is cute little story of a girl who lost her mother recently and trying to cope. There are some heart-touching moments but the book is light enough to get going. Illustrations are really beautiful and story flows naturally.
There is hint of lesbian romance between Lana's aunt and sea-goddess which I think was nice touch as well...
This was so dang cute. Gorgeous art, a well-told story, and an important message about conservation!
Aquicorn Cove es una novela gráfica muy tierna y con un mensaje ecológico súper fuerte sobre el uso y la explotación sin límite que le damos los humanos a los recursos naturales. Toda la historia está teñida de un toque fantástico, de seres mitológicos acuáticos y, además, de amor sin importar absolutamente nada más.
This book is super cute!
I love the illustration, the message to taking care of the ocean. It teaches us to always do the right thing, to not be selfish and think only about ourselves.
Beside that, this book will make a very cute gift for your loved ones :)

This sweet story is gorgeously illustrated! I loved the aquicorns, and the message behind Lana’s tale. I’d highly recommend this to anyone looking for a cute, lovely graphic novel.
What a cute little book, and very important too. A strong message about sea pollution and overfishing, about loss and grief, and about family. There's also a (subtle but canon) f/f relationship that is just too precious. And the Aquicorns are as amazing as the Tea Dragons.
