This quarto sized book is a fabulous and visual delight with detailed information throughout each page including front and back end pages. The intricate pictures combine with the accompanying text to provide detailed information. Despite the level of information, every detail is easily digestible and the text clear and accessible. Each page has a full-page colourful illustration and sometimes there is a double-page spread. Identification keys are included and add to the fun of naming the animals in the illustrations. The environment and environment change are detailed when relevant. This is a great example of modern-day non-fiction and its ability to impart lots of information in an effective way, rather than in large parts of dry text. A stunningly produced, meticulously researched and wonderfully illustrated book. Going beyond simply sharks and crabs, this books covers, molluscs, stingrays, crustaceans, birds of the reef, mammals of the sea, reptiles of the reef and much more, revealing the level of detailed research contributing to the book. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives are included as are the local names for areas and animals.
