World Oceans Day, which takes place on the 8th of June is a celebration and honour of the land which connects us all.
One local author is hoping to encourage and get more children involved in the day, through the power of literature.
The aim is to raise more awareness using a children's book which demonstrates the impact of litter pollution in the worlds oceans.
