Set in Australia's Great Barrier Reef, this lyrical rhyming tale introduces young readers to some of the coral reef's most striking residents. From the sleek shark to the colorful parrotfish to the deceptively beautiful sea anemone, each creature in this abundant undersea world relies on another for its existence. Beginning with coral, the very element that defines this ecosystem, Madeleine Dunphy uses a cumulative approach, combining simple yet forceful verse with repetition to reveal the fragile chain that links each of the plants and animals in this unique environment. Tom Leonard's vibrant paintings capture this miraculous circle of life.

Selected as a "Reading Rainbow Book"

"Set beneath the coral sea of Australia's Great Barrier Reef, this forceful cumulative rhyming tale introduces some of the striking residents of the coral reef ecosystem.... The artist varies perspectives, giving viewers the impression that they are not only underwater at level with the reef's inhabitants, but sometimes at tooth level."
--Kirkus Reviews

"[T]his vibrant, idealized picture of the southern hemisphere reef will grab and hold the attention of young viewers."
--School Library Journal

"This vividly illustrated book presents the interdependence of the various inhabitants of the ecosystem that is Australia's Great Barrier Reef. The repeating verse style will engage young readers as they gain an appreciation of the plants, fish, and other sea creatures that live in and around the reef."
--Science and Children
