Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 4^-6. Illustrated with clear, colorful photographs, this book explores the variety of life in coral reefs. Pringle describes the physical conditions and biological partnerships that contribute to this rich, complex ecosystem. He compares the coral reef to the rain forest in terms of its diversity of life, potential benefits to humankind, and ongoing destruction of habitat. Clearly written and well illustrated, the book provides close-up views of many reef animals as well as a wider perspective on this beautiful, vulnerable ecosystem. --Carolyn Phelan"
