What I would have given for a book like this twenty-something years ago when I was a kid playing in rock pools. And I am just as excited about it now as I would have been back then. Dr Sophie von der Heyden, marine biologist and geneticist at the University of Stellenbosch and mother of two young children, has presented us with an informative, colourful and easy-to-read guide to southern African sea life and marine habitats. And the vivid photographs by underwater photographer Guido Zsilavecz help bring the book to life. Although primarily aimed at children ranging from primary to early high school, older children and adults alike will enjoy this book.
