Chicken Soup for the Ocean Lover's Soul: Amazing Sea Stories and Wyland Artwork to Open the Heart and Rekindle the Spirit

by Mark Victor Hansen, Jack Canfield, and Wyland

The Ocean Is Calling...

All of us, at one time or another, find ourselves inexplicably drawn to the sea. For some, it's a place for reflection or romance. For others, it's the thrill of surf crashing against a sandy white beach or studying the kaleidoscope of life among a tropical coral reef. The power of the ocean to change our lives, to inspire us and to fascinate us is what led us to create Chicken Soup for the Ocean Lover's Soul, a collection of stories from around the world that celebrates the magic of our ocean planet.


The sea, from the beginning of time, has inspired great art and amazing stories. Chicken Soup for the Ocean Lover's Soul has captured magical encounters with whales and dolphins, tales of courage on the high seas, and captivating tales of love and hope to warm your soul and touch your heart. And, for the first time, sea and story come to life with exclusive artwork and a special eight-page color section by Wyland, the world's most acclaimed marine-life artist.


So get ready to dive in as we guide you on a journey of discovery and stories that will lift your spirit and awaken your senses like the healing sea itself. At last, a Chicken Soup for the Soul book for ocean lovers like you!
