The Coral Kingdom


My latest children’s book ‘The Coral Kingdom’ explores the magical underwater world of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. A subject very close to my heart, the book invites both children and adults alike to discover the colourful reefs and the vibrant marine life they support whilst communicating the urgent need to conserve this vital ecosystem. Reefs around the world are suffering from irreversible bleaching caused by ocean acidification and climate change, and this book aims to help encourage appreciation for this unique natural wonder vital to so many animals and humans. Charismatic crabs, elegant stingrays and magnificent humpbacks are just a few of the reef’s visitors featured within the pages, and if you look closely you might be able to spot spiny lobsters, pygmy seahorses and camouflaged octopus. The illustrations were created through hard ground etching, then painted with watercolour and accompany a gentle rhyme beautifully written by Laura Knowles.

Each book will come signed by yours truly and I can also write a short dedication in the inside cover for a special someone – just leave me a note of the message you'd like written in the notes section!
