“Fish out of the barn! Fish out of the barn! No, no, no! Mom’s gonna kill me! Caterina! Wait! Oh, good morning, Mr. Branzino. And also, I’m sorry. Well, how’s Mrs. Branzino? Excuse me, ma’am. Have you… Giuseppe, get back here! You want to run off like your buddy Enrico? Because I’ve got news for you. He’s either dead, or he’s out there. Somewhere. Seeing the world. But he’s probably dead. Phew. Okay, that’s everyone. Monalisa, why are you smiling? Anyone else in there? Giuseppe. What did we just talk about? Oh, Giuseppe. All right. Let’s head out. Hello. Hi, Mrs. Aragosta. Good morning! Okay. All clear. Let me know if you need anything. Anyone? No? Okay. Giuseppe… oh. Huh?” — Luca Paguro

“Be right there! Come on! We gotta get back. Uh… yes, mom. No. I… I don’t. Uh-huh. Thanks, mom. Hi, grandma. Mwah. Hi, dad. Oh, nice. Sorry. Huh? Uh… uh… well, I was just wondering… where do boats come from? Mom! What are you doing? You’ve been to the surface and dodne the change? I was just curious. Yes, mom. I know, mom.” — Luca Paguro

“Huh? Hmm. Whoa. Hmm. Hmm. Huh? Oh! Thank goodness. Uh… do you live around here? Uh, hey! Wait, that’s mine! Sir? You forgot your harpoon and… what? What are you doing? No, no! Ahh! Oh, no! Help me! Of course it is! I’m a good kid! Whoa. No! It’s bad, and I’m not supposed to be up here. Good day. Thank you. Good… good day. Again.” — Luca Paguro

“Grandma, did you really go up to the… okay, everyone. This is, uh, Smuca. Yeah. He’s in charge now. Got it?” — Luca Paguro

“Aah! Wait. It feels like it’s still there. I don’t know how to not think about something. Heh. I’m… I’m getting it! Luca Paguro. What does it mean? The thing you just said? Mother-of-pearl! You live up here? Isn’t it dangerous? Like, what else? Whoa. Whoa. What’s that? Whoa. ‘Vespa is freedom.’ Whoo-hoo-hoo. Yeah! Uh… yeah. Huh. Are you gonna make one? I think you have all the parts. Me? Yeah! Wait! No, I can’t. I gotta go home. Yeah, if my parents found out I was up here… oof. It would be bad. So, thank you, but… goodbye. Forever.” — Luca Paguro

“Okay, but now, I really do have to go. Seriously, I have to go, like, now. Like, right now. It’s even better than the picture. Gotta run. Uh… don’t say surface. Don’t say surface. Surface. Oh, I… I… uh… right! Sorry, grandma, I couldn’t find them. Thank you.” — Luca Paguro

“Uh… oh, well, thank you, but no thank you. I mean, I just think maybe I would die.” — Luca Paguro

“Boo. It’s fine. I’m not human. Here, hold this. Down here? No, no, no. I just came for my stuff. Ooh. Oh, yeah. Thanks! First time? Hey, relax. Breathe. Well? Isn’t it great?”

“Wow. That was hard to watch. Here. Come on. Yeah, that’s called phantom tail. You’ll get used to it. Right. Walking. Don’t worry, you’re in luck. I basically invented it. To start, stack everything one on top of the other. Like a pile of rocks. Great! I mean, fine, whatever. Now, walking is just like swimming. But without fins. Or a tail. And also, there’s no water. Otherwise, it’s like the exact same thing. Give it a try. That’s not it. Try it again. Oh, try to lead with your head. No, more belly. That’s… that’s lying on the ground. How about this? Just take a step without even thinking about it. No, no, no, don’t think about it. Okay, okay. Watch. Point your feet to where you wanna go. Okay? And then you just catch yourself before you fall. Yeah, that’s right. Good. Good. Yes. Yes! Not bad, kid. Alberto Scorfano. It’s a human thing. I’m kind of an expert. Come on. I’ll show you some more stuff! Yeah. Me and my dad. He’s not even here a whole lot, so I pretty much just do whatever I want. Yeah, it’s the best! Everything good is above the surface. Air! Gravity! Also known as falling! The sky. Clouds. The sun. Whoa. Don’t look at it. Just kidding. Definitely look at it. And then, there’s human stuff. As you can see, I’ve been collecting for a long time, so ask me anything. Yes. That’s the Magic Singing Lady Machine. It’s broken, unfortunately. Whoa! You unbroke it! Oh, it’s just the greatest thing that humans ever made. The Vespa. You just sit on it, and it takes you anywhere you wanna go. In the whole stinkin’ world! Pretty cool, right? I do have the parts. I am gonna make one! You wanna help? Right this second?”

“Okay. Bye. Okay. See ya. Yeah, it is. See ya tomorrow!”

“I rode it down. I didn’t. But I pushed it out the back window. Took a while to put back together, but it’s fine now. You ready to ride it?”

“Luca! Lunch is ready! You’re two minutes late. Was there a boat? Huh? Did you hide? Because if they catch even a glimpse of you… you think they come around to meet new friends, huh? Make small talk. No. They’re here to do murders. So, I’m just making sure you know. When I was a kid, we’d go weeks without seeing a boat, and let me tell you, they did not have motors. Just a sweat land monster with a paddle. Oh! Come eat, Luca. Come on. Everyone thinks Bianca Branzino’s so great with her prize-winning crabs and amazing dolphin impression. Please! Anyone can do that. Right? I don’t know why dolphins even sound like that. You know, why don’t they just talk? No! No! The end! Shut it down! Yeah? Well, the curious fish gets caught. We do not talk, think, discuss, contemplate, or go anywhere near the surface! Got it? Here. Now let’s get back to work. Hey. Look me in the eye. You know I love you, right? We’re a little worried about him, right?”

“Luca! Where have you been? What did you just say? Luca. Gonna tell us where you were? Mom, his life is maybe a little more important than your snacks.”

“Luca! Look at Pinchy-pessa. She’s molting. Oh, it’s magnificent. Now, here’s a champion show crab if I ever saw one. Whoa, whoa, whoa! Don’t look her in the eye! But don’t apologize. She can sense weakness. No, thanks! I’m full.”

“What’s wrong with your foot?”


“Hey, Bubble. Luca. What’s on your mind? That land monster town. Just above the surface. I beat a guy at cards there once. He’s old enough to hear about it.”

“It’s my fault. I sent him to look for sea cucumbers.”

“Listen, Tonmmaso, do we really need to fish near the island? Eh, you worry too much. What if the old stories are true? Too many strange things have been seen in these waters. But, Tommaso… what is that? I told you they were real.”

Fisherman 2

“Eh, you worry too much. Oh, come on, Giacomo. You really believe in sea monsters? They’re all just stores. Tall tales to keep us away from a great fishing spot. We’re fine. Ah, that’s more like it. You missed. Let’s go, before it comes back for us. Oh, what a monster! Horrifying!”
