Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The clarity and color of these remarkable photographs show the beauty of coral reefs while a straightforward text describes how reefs develop, the variety of sea life, and what the future holds. One way that the denizens of the reef have been able to survive is through their differing schedules. The sea life you see during the day, or at dawn or dusk, is entirely different from that seen at night. Also, what each animal eats is quite specific. These cycles and food chains are intricate, and no matter when you visit, the reef teems with activity. A glossary, bibliography, and index are included.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-Home to a myriad of vastly differing creatures, a coral reef is very much like a city-a bustling, densely populated system that never sleeps. Cerullo's comparison helps in clarifying the structure, functioning, and interdependent relationships of this ecosystem. The uncertain future of coral reefs brings the book to a close. As fascinatingly fact-filled as the text is, it's even more outstanding because of Rotman's spectacular, full-color photographs. Translucent golden coral polyps extend tentacles like rays of an undersea sun. A fuzzy hermit crab's bright blue eyes peep from beneath its shell. A delicate crinoid perches atop a fire coral, its sticky tube feet spread gracefully to trap plankton. These clear, bright, well-composed pictures are reason enough to purchase this title. Combined with plentiful information, it's a standout.-Lisa Wu Stowe, Great Neck Library, NY
Chris Sherman
With photographs by Jeffrey Rotman, Cerullo's latest is as beautiful as it is informative. The exotic, brilliantly colored inhabitants of reefs, including the corals themselves, are captured perfectly in Rotman's exceptional photographs, which make the book a true browser's delight. Cerullo does an equally fine job of explaining how coral reefs are formed and describing the interdependence of reef inhabitants and the activity on the reef during the day and at" night. She also discusses how and why coral reefs are threatened and what can be done to protect them. A glossary and a bibliography of juvenile and adult titles are provided.
