Synopsis

Seahorse The Shyest Fish in the Sea by Chris Butterworth

Dive into the ocean and discover one of the shyest fish in the sea - the seahorse! In the warm ocean, among the waving sea grass meadows, an eye like a small black bead is watching the fish dart by. Who does it belong to? Seahorse! Dive into the magical, underwater realm of one of the shyest fish of all! Discover the secrets of a seahorse's life-cycle, and find out about its food, its habitat, and how it is the dad, not the mum, who gives birth to their babies! Made in consultation with seahorse expert Colin Wells of Plymouth Marine Aquarium, this book contains accurate information suitable for classroom projects and activities. In the accompanying CD (aprox. 17min), actor Stephen Tompkinson explores the wonderful world of seahorses through information, music and story.

About the Author

Chris Butterworth is the author of over seventy books, mostly non-fiction, and has written on subjects as diverse as disasters, hiccups, basketball and snakes. She lives in Cornwall. John Lawrence grew up by the sea in Hastings. I loved swimming and pottering along shore, he says. It was terrible when sea defences, barbed wire and tank traps were put up along the South Coast in 1940. But it was really exciting to be allowed back onto the beach and into the sea a few years later, after the war. John thinks of himself a something of a workaholic. I have illustrated many books for adults and children over the last forty years, he says. It's a particular pleasure to be doing more work for younger children, as I am at the moment. John Lawrence has contributed to well over 100 books for children and adults as an illustrator and wood-engraver. He is renowned for his striking images that use tools and methods of engraving from the eighteenth century. Twice winner of the Francis Williams Book Illustration Award, his illustrated titles include Lyra's Oxford by Philip Pullman, Tiny's Big Adventure by Martin Waddell and Christmas in Exeter Street by Diana Hendry.
