Dorothy Hinshaw Patent, Author, Kendahl Jan Jubb, Illustrator Walker & Company $17.95 (40p) ISBN 978-0-8027-8862-7
In the spirit of their Fabulous Fluttering Tropical Butterflies and Flashy Fantastic Rain Forest Frogs, author Dorothy Hinshaw Patent and artist Kendahi Jan Jubb take on another vibrant habitat in Colorful Captivating Coral Reefs. Their text and artwork depict the many species of fish who depend on coral reefs (4,000), what coral reefs are made of (mostly limestone) and how different reef animals are interdependent (e.g., ""Some fish and shrimps... set up `cleaning stations,' "" eating parasites and bits of dead skin from the bodies of larger fish).
