Wildlife of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef by Myke Mollard

December 15, 2023

A stunning and informative picture book

Myke Mollard’s signature illustrations and engaging text bring kids up close and personal with hundreds of the creatures found on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef: corals, fish including sharks, turtles and other marine reptiles, whales and dolphins, birds, molluscs, crustaceans, even the animals found on the reef’s 900-odd islands. The creatures are not only beautifully drawn and coloured, but the accompanying text vividly describes their lifestyles and habits. The wonderment of these stunning animals, delivered in an engaging cinematic punch, will excite the imaginations of children for life and fully engage any adult with a love of Australia’s wildlife.


Myke Mollard is a children’s educator, illustrator, author and designer. He is also a passionate conservationist. One of Myke’s first books, in 2008, was the A-Z of Australian Bush Creatures. He is also the author of Australia’s Dangerous Creatures, Australia’s Endangered Creatures, Australian Dinosaurs and Mega Beasts and Australian Backyard Birds.
