* "Barner's use of layered paper and found objects adds both texture and depth. The parade of saltwater characters (everything from turtles and dolphins to sea horses, squid and jellyfish) come together in a visually dynamic and informative grand finale."--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review "A well-designed picture book, as simple and pleasing as a sea star."--Booklist "A dazzling introduction to the creatures living in the increasingly threatened environment of a coral reef. . . . A fresh and appealing look at a fascinating environment."--Kirkus Reviews "This engaging picture book with its simple and bright illustrations offers a creative introduction to the natural world of the sea."--School Library Journal
