Sea, the Storm, and the Mangrove Tangle, The A seed from a mangrove tree floats far away and takes root in a lagoon in the Caribbean sea: so begins this persuasive story of an ecosystem and its importance to the diversity of marine life, birds and animals. The author chronicles the lifecycle of one mangrove tree and introduces the notion of the interdependence of living things and the fragility of that balance (a message previously explored in her book, The Great Kapok Tree). The text - which imagines the thoughts of the many living beings that colonise the mangrove island - is set within a picture book format of dramatic and absorbing detail. A lovely book.
