Opal is so overwhelmed, she’s stress-squirting ink blots! Despite having eight tentacles and an ocean’s worth of energy, she’s struggling to manage all her commitments – homework, art projects, sports, parties and friends.

With her energy draining and worry building, Opal asks her best pals for help. But after she follows Hedgehog’s advice, she winds up looking and feeling like a slug. And Squirrel’s suggestion turns Opal into an even bigger scatterbrain. Maybe Mom’s advice to simply RESET is best? Will getting more rest, eating healthier, saying no more often, exercising and taking time for herself create the change Opal needs to finally find her happy place?

Find out in this cute and colorful story for children in grades K through 5. Included at the end are tips for parents and educators to help manage stress in young children.
