Nautilius by Meg Lyman

Born long ago in the ancient undersea city of Atlantis, Nautilius was a hero of the ages. While he lacked in wits, as most nautilus do, he excelled strength and bravery. Amongst his greatest feats were Slaying the Invasive Lionfish Horde and Fending Off the Mighty Kraken, saving Atlantis from certain destruction. His heroism is a shining example to young nautlettes throughout the oceans today.
Sometimes I get thinking that I give nautilus too much credit, because they’re so dumb. But then I remember they are twice as old as dinosaurs and could eat my face.
