    A fabulous book with wonderful pictures. The students I gave this to have really gotten into learning about the Conch and unusual animal. The product was as described.

    was visiting Turks and Caicos islands. There i paid $17.00. Wish I had known at the time I could get it from Amazon! but a great little book for any one wanting to know about the life of a conch!! nice illustrations, also bought her coral reef coloring book, from AMazon!, for my granddaughter! (and maybe for me too;)Her "Leroy the lobster" book is also good, but it was cheaper in the islands.
