In a Coral Reef
Marianne Berkes Illustrated by Jeanette Canyon

It takes remarkable art to portray the amazing colours and shapes of a coral reef and this new children's book accomplishes this with a unique art media. OVER IN THE OCEAN uses polymer clay to bring picture books for children to a compelling new dimension. The illustrations by Jeanette Canyon are practically tactile and are actually photographs of reliefs, shaped and sculpted from clay.

Author Marianne Berkes adapts the whimsical classic song of "Over in the Meadow" to bring both a counting element and a musical element to the coral reef habitat. Berkes has given us a book that will engage children and educate them about marine life too. The coral reef is teeming with pufferfish that puff, gruntfish that grunt and seahorses that flutter. The babies follow the behaviour of their mothers, except in a true to life twist at the end it is a father seahorse that leads his babies. She also provides plenty of age appropriate background information about each of the animals.

Ages 3-8
