All About New Zealand's Seashore introduces the plants and animals of the shore to young children, covering major groups such as: seaweeds (such as kelp, Neptune's necklace, wrack); shore plants (pingao, spinifex, pohutukawa, etc.); shore invertebrates (sandhoppers, katipo, etc.); rockpool and surf creatures (crabs, seashells, sea stars, jellyfish, anemones etc.) New Holland's new 'All About ...' children's natural history series from top illustrator Dave Gunson kicked off in October 08 with All About New Zealand Birds, which is followed by Insects and other Creepy-Crawlies (Jan 09) and Plants (Sep 09). Though published for children, Dave Gunson's true-to-life pictures and engaging text will interest any reader from 6 years to 60.
