The Brilliant Deep: Rebuilding the World's Coral Reefs: The Story of Ken Nedimyer and the Coral Restoration Foundation

(2) K-3 Illustrated by Matthew Forsythe. Messner describes the threatened Florida Keys coral reefs and the efforts of one man--Ken Nedimyer, founder of the Coral Restoration Foundation--to restore them to health and vigor. Forsythe's illustrations are a unique take on tropical waterscapes, juxtaposing kaleidoscopic color washes with dark and light foundational structures to capture details of the corals and their protectors. "How Can Kids Help?" section is appended. Reading list, websites. Glos.
