The Deep Black Pond

By Morgan Kostival


Meet the Author

Morgan Kostival plans to continue writing and illustrating children’s books. “I wrote this book while simultaneously creating and photographing the creatures that are featured in it. I was interested in creating a world that was hitherto unknown.” He lives in Lake Worth, Florida.


Explore deeper than you thought you would ever go in this fanciful children’s book set on a tropical island. Join author/photographer Morgan Kostival, as he ventures deep into an island pond to photograph and write about some of the fun creatures you will find there.

The fascinating children’s adventure The Deep Black Pond takes you up close and personal to meet the water’s inhabitants, like Mimi the peewee, as you learn how Mimi becomes the very first pink pearl. You will also be introduced to Cuddles the fish as well as the Queen of the water lilies and the mysterious “Baron.”

Kostival wrote this fable to preserve his “child-like imagination that, sadly, too many adults forget how to use.” If you can imagine it, you can meet it in The Deep Black Pond.
