Hardy adventurers ages 6 - 9 dive into a silent watery world where tiny coral animals grow together to form rock gardens of white, pink, and red-orange. In this action-packed undersea circus, jaws snap, tentacles sting, ink gets squirted, and fish suddenly glow while animals that look like plants sway gently and bashful clams hide the lively secrets inside their shells.

From Our Editors

The coral reef is an eat-or-be-eaten world, where animals can look like delicate plants or colorful rocks. It's also a place where a fish can light up like a flashlight--where jaws snap, tentacles sting, and a squirt of ink can save a life. A fascinating habitat lies between the covers of this never-before-published look at an endangered undersea ecosystem. Full color.
