Synopsis

Coral Reefs by Jason Chin

During an ordinary visit to the library, a girl pulls a not so ordinary book from the shelves. As she turns the pages in this book about coral reefs, the city around her slips away and she finds herself surrounded by the coral cities of the sea and the mysterious plants and animals that live, hunt, and hide there. Jason Chin's follow up to his critically acclaimed book Redwoods is a bold and beautiful picture storybook filled to the brim with fascinating facts about the coral reefs.

Reviews

Information and fantasy collaborate in this imaginative introduction to coral reefs. -- BCCB

Chin, who pioneered this hybrid form of straightforward nonfiction text and fanciful pictures with Redwoods (2009), offers another a statement about the power of reading for an imaginative child with this appealing introduction to a complex world. -- Kirkus Reviews , starred review Chin's detailed illustrations capture the dappled light of shallow water and the bright tropical colors and patterns in the featured flora and fauna.... Readers shouldn't skip the information at the back, which explains the serious problem of coral bleaching due to global warming. -- Horn Book Magazine
