Described on the cover as a Shine-a-Light book, this truly reveals hidden habitats for dozens of amazing sea creatures. It is a large, almost square book, and at first handling seems a little clumsy to manipulate, but as the reader ventures further, the fun of holding the right hand page to the light to enable the image on the following page to shine through becomes intriguing. The book begins, ‘A rock pool is bustling with life’. Yet the accompanying illustration shows us just a single oystercatcher on the rocks. As we read on, we learn to hold up the book to a window, or torch, to discover a small world of great surprises. It is the best kind of information book for young children, being interactive on every spread. The text is simple, yet the informative, descriptive words are almost poetic, and the illustrations teem with life. The book would certainly enhance any classroom work on sealife, and would be a great for children to share together.
