A Coral Reef Story

Jane Burnard

About the book

This is a coral reef. A living, limestone necklace beneath the sea ­– multi-coloured, ever-changing and full of animals.

A Coral Reef Story brings together a spellbinding narrative, breathtaking illustrations and fascinating facts about the astonishing creatures that live in one of our planet’s most precious environments. Travelling through the seasons over the course of one year, we meet great white sharks, bright parrotfish, graceful green turtles and more amazing animals as they hunt for food and play. See the stripy clown fish fiercely guarding his babies, the eel spitting out a spiky porcupinefish, and a queue of hermit crabs jostling to move into their new shells.

With lyrical text by Jane Burnard combining with Kendra Binney's evocative illustrations to show readers the magical beauty of the coral reef, this is a story sure to inspire wonder in the natural world.

Explore the world's habitats and the amazing animals that live there and collect all the titles in the series with An Arctic Story and A Rainforest Story.
