On their Caribbean adventure, they meet several new sea friends, including a whale shark, an octopus, and a moray eel. But as Kobee and his buddies begin their thrilling exploration of the wreck, Kobee gets trapped inside the sunken ship! Can Tess, Pablo, and the new sea friends rescue Kobee? Children, parents, and teachers are sure to enjoy this spectacular tale loaded with surprises, fun, and exciting facts all about Caribbean reef fish.
