"You'll feel the mud squeeze between your toes
And a funny smell will go up your nose
When you look at the mangrove you just might spy
Some sideways crabs as they scurry by"
This unique and quite exceptional children's picture book describes the life-cycle of a mangrove with charming rhyming text and beautiful illustrations. The hero of the story is really the mangrove tree. This is a very well thought-out concept and comfortably crosses between fiction and non-fiction. Mangroves show the fragility of our ecosystems.
