The Great Barrier Reef

I’m very excited to introduce my first book for children, The Great Barrier Reef, with beautiful illustrations by the artist Lisk Feng.

With nearly 400,000 square kilometres of dazzling colour, intricate ecosystems and unique creatures, the Great Barrier Reef is one of the greatest natural wonders of our world.

This place of breathtaking beauty, above and beneath the waves, bursts with colour and teams with life.

In the book, we meet the animals and plants that make the reef their home and see how they all get along together in this busy, bustling space. The snapping shrimp, super-smart octopuses, the fish and crabs, sea cows and sea snakes, dolphins, turtles and whales.

For thousands of years, people have lived alongside the reef, using it in many ways, creating artworks and telling stories.

Explorers and scientists are still learning about the great barrier reef and its inhabitants and finding ways to help save it from the troubles of the modern world.

Because, the Great Barrier Reef – one of the world’s greatest living wonders – is in trouble, and it’s needs our help so for generations to come it will continue to thrive and survive.

Copies are available from my publisher, Flying Eye Books, from Bookshop.org in the UK, or Bookshop.org in the US.
