The British beach is full of creatures that we think we know - from crabs to clams, starfish to anemones. But, in fact, we barely understand how many survive or thrive. In Rock Pool the delights of childhood paddling are elevated to oceanic discoveries, as the fragile beauty and drama of intertidal existence is illustrated through the incredible lives of twenty-four individual creatures.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`Buttivant's passion and expertise shine from the pages of this beautiful book to reveal the secret stories of the creatures that inhabit the wonderful marine ponds which twice daily grace our shores. An excellent companion for camera and bucket.' Tony Juniper CBE, environmentalist and writer | 'Heather Buttivant writes with an eloquence that I could not achieve about the "magic" of seashores and the excitement and passion they create. The text is authoritative and accurate - you can learn much that will fascinate, inform and will inspire you to follow in her footsteps.' Keith Hiscock, author of Exploring Britain's Hidden World: a Natural History of Seabed Habitats
