About the Book

Front cover of The Sea Hides A Seahorse

The Sea Hides A Seahorse

“This saltwater standout will have librarians, parents, and mini marine biologists hooked.” —School Library Journal, starred review
Hidden in the ocean of colorful fish, octopus, kelp, sea sponges, and other sea life is a most unique creature: the seahorse. 
Featuring different species of seahorses and sea dragons across the world, The Sea Hides a Seahorse is a subtle seek-and-find story that journeys underwater to provide a glimpse into the secrets of seahorses as they swim, hide, hunt, court, mate, and more. Included at the back is more information about seahorses and how to support their protection and conservation.
A portion of the proceeds from the sales of The Sea Hides a Seahorse will be donated to support marine education and seahorse conservation.
