" Informative, engagingly written, and appealingly illustrated. " said.

" This is a fascinating look at the many jobs shells have. " said.

" So glad to finally see the finished copy. I read a PDF so long ago that I couldn't even mark it on GoodReads at the time. Love this book. " said.

" Another winning book from a talented team! Melissa Stewart is a gifted author/scientist, and Sarah Brannen's illustrations bring the research to life! I enjoyed the structure of this book through its use of similes. " said.

" This book isn't storytime material, but I think the illustrations are lovely and the facts aren't overly complicated. I think this is a good gateway book for kids getting into biology or any animal science. " said.

" Did you know that seashells can help animals rise and fall like a submarine? Or sink and stay steady like an anchor? As a young child, I loved collecting seashells. This book is perfect for developing enquiring minds, helping children think about design and engineering in nature. " said.

" Absolutely fascinating! I’ve always wondered about seashells but never took the time to research them. This book gives a wealth of information and helps me understand seashells better. Another excellent book from Melissa Stewart! " said.

"A gem! As a seashell-collecting kid, I know I would have adored this book. Even as an adult, I learned several new things.

Today, unfortunately, seashell-wearing mollusks are collected at unsustainable levels to supply the decorative shell market, endangering some species. This book doesn't delve into that, but it is reminder that a seashell is a home, and it serves its resident in a variety of different ways. Happily, the book only depicts seashell collecting in the context of finding cast-off shells on the beach, or sketching pictures of seashell-wearing animals.
