Fascinating Fish Excerpt:

Moonlight shimmered down through the water giving the reef a soft glow. Five little fish yawned and stretched their fins. The moon and stars encouraged the little fish to leave their coral beds. Curious to see the source of night-time light, Fish One gracefully swam past a sleepy Fish Two. Fish Two joined Fish One. They weaved past each other, back and forth, back and forth. As the fish swam past Fish Three, Fish Three flipped and Fish Four zipped to join the group. Finally, Fish Five twirled around all of them. The five fish giggled and smiled. They were ready to explore the night-time sea!

The five little fish swam away from their colorful coral beds. Fish One led the way through a maze of softly swaying sea plants. The five little fish peeked through the gentle leaves, curious to see who or what they would find today. A shadow floated over the five little fish and they looked up. The mysterious shape glided across the water without any flippers. Fish Two decided to get a closer look and zipped up towards the gentle shadow. Fish Two noticed the shadow had a ridge traveling along the underside of the shape, then zipped back to share the discovery with the others. “I’m not sure what it is yet. It might be a big fish. There’s a fin underneath,” Fish Two said.
