"Twelve gracious angelfish
thinking they're in heaven.
Along came the divers
Now there are...eleven."

And so, the countdown begins
until there are no fish remaining
in the Great Barrier Reef of Australia.

Each numbered verse illustrates
another obstacle, potential hazard
or threat to the fish and the reef:
divers, oil spills, plastic bags,
overfishing, oil drilling and more.

Beautiful illustrations of ink and dyes on silk combined with rhyming verse will hold the attention of the reader while learning about the human impact on our underwater friends.

Ages: 4 - 8
