Author(s): Margaret Wild
In the warm waters of the coral reef, one hundred and one baby seahorses are born. Their world is full of surprises, and there is so much to learn - especially for Leo, the littlest seahorse of them all. But when danger strikes, it's Leo who surprises everyone with a special discovery of his own. From two of Australia's best-loved picture-book creators comes this delightful story of small creatures on a big adventure.
