‘‘Parrotfish and the Storm’’
AVAILABLE NOW ON BLURB! https://www.blurb.com/b/9477310-parrotfish-and-the-storm
Parrotfish is startled by a strong current sweeping through the reef, when suddenly Eagle Ray appears overhead to warn Parrotfish and his neighbors that a storm is coming and to take cover. Once the storm finally passes, Parrotfish is surprised at how much their reef has changed. It's up to him and his neighbors to restore their coral reef to its former state, and to help a neighboring reef that is struggling to recover. The involvement of an unlikely helper causes an initial stir, but to everyone's surprise ends up being a hero in the effort to save the neighboring reef in trouble. An ecological story about coral reef resilience and recovery, underlining the importance of herbivores and apex predators in maintaining a coral reef ecosystem's delicate balance and ability to recover after a large-scale disturbance.
