Read an Excerpt

If you look underwater on any of the coral reefs of the world, you will see an incredibly beautiful place. Wow! Coral reefs may be the most interesting places on earth. A coral reef is made of millions of animals called coral. Corals have hard skeletons that attach to each other, forming huge colonies. A coral colony can be almost any shape, and many different colonies form a reef.
     Hundreds of other creatures live among the corals. There are seawees, sponges, crabs, anemones, snails, fanworms, and many more. The most colorful creatures living on the coral reefs may be the fishes...
     A is for Angelfish. There are enough different kinds of Angelfish in the world for someone to write an Angelfish Alphabet Book. The one on this page is a Flame Angelfish. It looks like the flame on a candle.
