A vibrant guide to the Great Barrier Reef full of surprising factoids and retro illustrations, perfect for children curious about life under the sea. Now in paperback!

"A very good book for beefing up the coral reef section, or for niche projects on climate change."
—School Library Journal

Did you know that giant clams can weigh as much as two baby elephants? Or that the shockwave of a pistol shrimp can heat up the surrounding waters to a temperature nearly as hot as the surface of the sun? With nearly 400,000 square kilometers of dazzling color, intricate ecosystems and unique creatures large and small, The Great Barrier Reef is one of the great natural wonders of our world.

Vibrant, dynamic illustrations illuminate this enchanting place, its animal inhabitants, and the peoples who have embraced it as a centerpiece of their cultures. Learn all about how the reef came to be, its place in the world, and perhaps most importantly, what we can all do to help ensure that The Great Barrier Reef will be around for countless future generations to discover!

MEDIA REVIEWS

This riveting account of the Great Barrier Reef by a Cambridge marine biologist, full of astonishing facts and colourfully and accurately depicted by an award-winning illustrator, is eye-opening. - Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times

One of the planet's greatest natural wonders twinkles and beguiles in this charming book. Like all the best children's illustrated non-fiction, there is enough here to interest and surprise grown-ups too, but never at the expense of concision or clarity. - BBC Wildlife

As ever with Flying Eye's well designed books, the text is clear and accessible and written clearly, and Lisk Feng's illustration is utterly captivating. - BookTrust
