The Curious World of Seahorses | Author: Till Hein

With the whimsy and heart of The Soul of an Octopus and the surprising details of the very best science writing, The Curious World of Seahorses brilliantly captures the ocean’s most charismatic and mysterious inhabitant.

Of all the creatures in the ocean, there are none more charming and magical — or more strange — than the seahorses. Masters of disguise, graceful dancers, and romantic lovers, seahorses are found not only in the seagrass meadows and mangroves of the world, but also throughout the annals of human history and culture — surfacing everywhere from chess and Greek mythology to Disney movies like The Little Mermaid and Pokémon games.

In this entertaining and informative book, science writer Till Hein shares the most tantalising findings from the world of seahorses, and the role they have played in human culture. Endlessly fascinating and charmingly approachable, The Curious World of Seahorses will captivate any reader looking to learn more about one of the most incredible creatures on Earth.
