The Great Barrier Reef Book: Solar Powered

By Mark Norman

Is it just me, or is it getting warmer here?

The Great Barrier Reef is a giant underwater city, teeming with colourful life. Everything is alive, or made by living creatures. It is so huge it can be seen from space! And the whole thing runs on solar power.

  • A topical subject as the Great Barrier Reef is a living barometer of the side effects of climate change on our environment.
  • Gorgeous full-colour photographs of the amazing creatures that kids love – clown fish, green turtles, manta rays and much more.
  • Sidebars, maps and fact boxes allow readers of all levels to engage with the text.
