Rock Pool: Extraordinary Encounters Between the Tides - A Life-Long Fascination Told in Twenty-Four Creatures

"A book of wonder and curiosity that shines a light into the strange, fascinating and sometimes gruesome world of the rock pool... immensely interesting." -- Christopher Nicholson, author of Among the Summer Snows and The Elephant Keeper

"Buttivant's passion and expertise shine from the pages of this beautiful book to reveal the secret stories of the creatures that inhabit the wonderful marine ponds which twice daily grace our shores. An excellent companion for camera and bucket." -- Tony Juniper CBE, environmentalist and writer

"Heather Buttivant writes with an eloquence that I could not achieve about the 'magic' of seashores and the excitement and passion they create. The text is authoritative and accurate - you can learn much that will fascinate, inform and will inspire you to follow in her footsteps." -- Keith Hiscock, author of Exploring Britain's Hidden World: a Natural History of Seabed Habitats

"Step into the entrancing world of the Rock Pool as the author introduces us to her characterful seashore companions. Beautifully written descriptions bring the experience alive; you can almost feel the sun on your face and taste the salt air. Storytelling at its best!" -- Julie Hatcher, author of The Essential Guide to Rockpooling, The Essential Guide to Beachcombing and the Strandline, and In the Company of Seahorses

"An eye-opening journey to meet the animal inhabitants of our shores... wonderful characters with stories to tell and challenges to overcome." -- -- Paul Naylor, marine biologist and photographer

"Her passion for life in the rock pools shines through in this rallying cry for the importance of marine conservation." -- The Countryman

"An utterly joyous book, a celebration of our incomparable 11,000 miles of British coastline... an eye-opening delight from start to finish." -- Daily Mail

""A wonderful book filled with things I didn't know." --Lisa Woollett, marine photographer and author of Sea Journal
