Zobi and the Zoox
With her home under threat from a warming ocean, Zobi, a brave rhizobia bacterium, teams up with a family of slow but steady Zoox (zooxanthellae). As the coral bleaches, everyone begins to starve...
Can Zobi and the Zoox work together to save the day?
This beautifully illustrated science-adventure story, set on the Great Barrier Reef, was originally published in 2015, but has been extensively re-written and revised to delight and captivate primary school-aged readers.
Zobi and the Zoox: A Story of Coral Bleaching is the first in the new Small Friends Books series - Stories of Partnership and Cooperation in Nature.
Reading level varies from child to child, but we recommend this book for ages 8-12.
