A beautifully illustrated, lyrical and informative story about dugongs, one of our most unique endangered animals. Ideal for anyone with an interest in marine life and the environment, and an excellent teaching resource. There are not many dugongs left in the world now. But what if humans freed the sea from nets? What if we cleared it of rubbish so that seagrass could flourish again and dugongs could feed? A beautiful and thought-provoking picture book about dugongs - the mysterious creatures who were once mistaken for mermaids. Deborah's Kelly's beautiful, lyrical writing brings these animals to life, and highlights the dangers they face, inspiring young readers to care for and protect our natural world. Lisa Stewart's gorgeous illustrations capture the beauty of these gentle and endangered creatures.
