Riley joins Uncle Max, Aunt Martha, and Cousin Alice on a grand undersea adventure as they explore Australia’s Great Barrier Reef! With poachers, sharks, and stinging starfish around every corner, will Riley ever discover why parts of the reef are dying off?

A children’s book series unlike any other, the award-winning Adventures of Riley titles feature non-stop action, wild and weird animal facts, real-life scientists, and stunning visuals that blend vibrant character art with spectacular panoramic photographs.

“I heartily recommend the book for a young person who wishes to know more about the environment…the authors have done a wonderful job balancing science information with a story narrative.” – Gayle Surrette, Book Review Blogger,

“The Riley books are just a perfect package—fun, thrilling, [and] informative…they are an excellent choice for reluctant readers in particular.” – Colleen Mondor, Eclectica Magazine Review Editor and Booklist reviewer
