Swept away

A review of Coral Reefs by Jason Chin

This beautifully illustrated picture book tells two stories at the same time. After a girl checks out this exact book from the library, she finds herself in a whole new world. Fascinating facts about coral reefs are told on each page as the reefs grow around her, until soon she is swept away. She reads about and meets different kinds of sea life, including parrot fish, hungry sharks, and even an octopus. This book is sure to delight readers young and old.
