Overview

A seed takes root in a lagoon in the Caribbean Sea, and slowly grows into a mangrove tangle that is home to hundreds of species of animals, from the birds, insects, and lizards that live in its branches to the fish, shrimp, and seahorses that live and lay their eggs under its roots. When a powerful hurricane comes to the lagoon, all of these animals survive the thrashing winds and churning water, tucked into the shelter of the mangrove tree. Endpaper maps indicate where mangroves are located and the names of common animals and plants found in them.

“Cherry paints lustrous, detailed scenes that, together with her accessible narrative, will spark children’s interest in a magnificent, endangered ecosystem.” – Booklist
