Every year, green sea turtles swim through the deep waters of the Pacific Ocean to lay their eggs on the beaches of a coral reef. Guided by the stars and sea currents, the turtles swim day and night until at last they reach the reef. Their long journey is finally over, but the danger they face has just begun . . .
In this beautifully illustrated picture book, the amazing world of a coral reef is brought vividly to life. 'Reef' explores the thousands of creatures and forms of plant life that make up the living reef, as well as its many hidden dangers. Accompanied by lively and evocative text, 'Reef' is a wonderful way for children to learn about a complex eco-system which is such a distinctive part of Australian wildlife.
