A Treasure of a Book A Customer From the moment I opened this book I was entranced by its luxurient pictures. Catala, the director of an aquarium in New Caledonia, has used his resources well to provide us with a glimpse of many organisms that the vast majority of us will never see otherwise. Specimens range from the common to the extremely rare, and his coverage of the variou. Love this book. Lara K Duwe I took this book out of the library 8 times one Fall, as a child and loved it. I bought it remembering how much I loved it and as I was looking through it, the pictures are even more brilliant than I remembered. I highly recommend this book!
