Great Barrier Reef Coloring Book

Dover Publications has the best deal on the net for coloring books! For $3.95 plus S&H you can get 32 pages of underwater reef pleasure! Who says the blue-ringed octopus (below) has to have blue rings? Why not lemon, or dirt brown (to signify where you will be buried should you touch it)? Stocked full with corals, nudibranchs, and oh yeah, those swimming vertebrate things that Mike the traitor likes, this coloring book will be sure to inspire your little ocean diver! Just look at the pretty coral on the cover. Its too bad those blobby orange stripey things are in the way.

  1. Awesome! I don't know how we've missed this gem!

    Tammy can use the coloring book to design her blue ringed octopus stuffed animal (knit)...Hey then even the $3.95 is either an education expense (me) or a business expense (her) !

  2. looks like there are a lot of cool coloring and activity boos on the site. I like this one, too:

  3. I'll never live that down, will I?

    I'll have you know that I am studying some evo-devo genetics stuff and will write a strictly invert post in the series to make up for the tiny short-lived barely vertebrate fish post (something that I thought was relevant because of their interdependent relationship with coral.)

    Cool coloring book, btw.
