Seahorse: The Shyest Fish in the Sea

By Chris Butterworth
Illustrated by John Lawrence

Dive into the ocean and discover one of the shyest fish in the sea – the seahorse!

In the warm ocean, among the waving sea grass meadows, an eye like a small black bead is watching the fish dart by. Who does it belong to? Seahorse! Dive into the magical, underwater realm of one of the shyest fish of all! Discover the secrets of a seahorse's life-cycle, and find out about its food, its habitat, and how it is the dad, not the mum, who gives birth to their babies! Made in consultation with seahorse expert Colin Wells of Plymouth Marine Aquarium, this book contains accurate information suitable for classroom projects and activities.

  • A captivating look at the life of the seahorse - ideal for reading aloud and classroom study.
  • "Exquisitely executed and delicately coloured woodcuts." - The Guardian on Tiny's Big Adventure
