About Peppy’s Coral Kingdom
Pages 3-6

Formatted as a comic book (24 pages), Peppy’s Coral Kingdom is an entertaining, visually rich way for kids ages 8-10 to learn about coral reef and pollution. Throughout the book, there are scientific factoids such as: * Why do coral get sick? * What is an artificial reef? In Peppy’s Coral Kingdom, Peppy (a baby coral polyp) is homeless – she quickly needs to find out how to clean up an abandoned reef so that she can rebuild it with all her brothers and sisters and cousins to live there. During her quest, Peppy meets Queen Connie, a conch who was banished from the beautiful Natural Reef by the Royal Moray Eels, and her advisor, Brian the Brain Coral. Peppy is a smart little coral planula. She and her friends must also convince the Land Sharks that coral reefs are important because they protect land from destructive waves created by storms and earthquakes. Scientists believe that dying coral reefs are the first indicator of a permanently changing world ecosystem. If the water warms up and reefs die, then all other living things on the planet may not have much time left either…
