The Seacret of Driftus and Sprout

By Maree Coote
Illustrated by Maree Coote

Deep in the cold clear waters off the Southern Australian coast is a strange but true, real live downunder underwater wonder.

Deep down under, in the cold, clear waters off the southern Australian Coast, is a strange but wonderful dragon, unlike any other in the world. No one even knows it’s there, but the world would be a terrible place without it. In this magical underwater tale, a very observant onlooker discovers a hidden dragon, and the last great seacret, hidden by the smallest dragon of all. It’s all about the value of imagination and creativity. Unique to the waters of the southern Australia, the Weedy Seadragon (Phyllopterix taeniolatus) and its cousin the Leafy Seadragon (Phycodurus eques) are truly remarkable creatures. This is part of a charming and very different series of Australiana. Illustrations are rich and the story is gentle and inspiring.
