This is a coral reef. A living, limestone necklace beneath the sea, built over thousands of years by billions of tiny creatures.

Discover incredible facts about the wide variety of creatures that live in and around the coral reef. Travelling through the seasons, we meet great white sharks, bright greenthroat parrotfish, graceful green turtles and more amazing animals as they hunt for food and play. See the stripy clown fish fiercely guarding his babies, and the eel spitting out a spiky porcupinefish. Beautiful descriptions of unique sea life are further animated by colourful illustrations that will leave children and adults poring over the pages of this book.

With lyrical text by Jane Burnard combining with Kendra Binney's evocative illustrations to show readers the magical beauty of the coral reef, this is a story sure to inspire wonder in the natural world.
