Review:

An internationally known marine biologist explores and explains the characteristics of some fish living on a coral reef...the full page, large photographs are spectacular. A book that will pique the curiosity of young naturalists... -- Boston Globe, Spring, 1999

Far less work than a home aquarium, and even more exotic in its content, is this collection of fish inhabitants of a tropical coral reef. From colorful clownfish to sinister stargazer, from blue-spotted stringray to silvertip shark, these denizens of the deep are here before our eyes, in clear, captivating close-up portraits. The text is short and simple, a mere hors d'oeuvre of an introduction to tropical fish, but the outsized dramatic color photographs will reward looking at again and again. (Selma G. Lanes, Parents' Choice, 1998) -- From Parents' Choice®

Young readers are invited into an undersea world of fish and other marine life in this photographic introduction to the coral reefs...Earle's text is simply and succinctly informative...Henry's superb color photographs of morays, brown gobys, sharks, damselfish, and others are composed like portraits, providing a remarkably up-close look at a remarkable variety of marine life. Both format and layout make this a strong non-fiction choice for both reading aloud to groups and individual beginning readers... -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, June 1999
