Discover a world beneath the waves that is teeming with life, from tiny graceful seahorses to darting tropical fish and from electric eels to humpback whales. A colourful array of sea creatures is brought to life by award-winning illustrator Britta Teckentrup in this delightful peep-through picture book.The colourful & stunning illustrations capture the otherworldly magic of the sea.
The die-cuts and two recurring little clown fish create a playful effect, and this is accompanied wonderfully by Hegarty’s calming rhyming text, making it a lovely read aloud that flows beautifully. The message about conservation on the last page is beautifully done: subtle, engaging, and encouraging further conversations and action about pollution, it is the perfect way of ending a book celebrating one of Earth’s most fascinating yet most fragile natural habitats.
