ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Another splendid narrative non-fiction book from CSIRO publishing! This tells the story of the Weedy Seadragon, a fish found along Australia's southern coastline. A poor swimmer but a beautiful dancer, a master of camouflage and inhabitant of kelp forests, a creature where the male broods the eggs - in short, a fascinating animal! Gorgeous illustrations capture the watery world and gracefulness of the dragons. More facts at the back of the book, including simple actions to protect these species - and a good glossary as well. Highly recommended for primary school readers!  Lindy Jones

Age range 6 to 9

Can you imagine a strange and colourful fish that looks like a dragon? It can't fly or breathe fire, but it is an excellent dancer!

The weedy seadragon is an amazing underwater fish with a talent for camouflage, weird eating habits and a unique courtship dance. But its habitat and future are threatened. This enchanting story takes you under the sea to meet this mysterious sea creature, and reveals its weird and wonderful ways.

Written by Anne Morgan, and beautifully illustrated by Lois Bury, The Way of the Weedy Seadragon invites you to dive into the astonishing lives of one of the world's most curious sea creatures.
