Set your spirit of adventure free with this journey to the world's great oceans, discovering the diversity of life that exists in the deep blue sea.
Whether you're traveling long haul with leatherback turtles across the Pacific, snoozing with sea otters or ice bathing with a walrus, this book celebrates the very prescient topic of the world's oceans with LucyLetherland's animal characters.
Each section begins with an infographic map of the ocean it explores--Atlantic, Pacific, Indian, Southern and Arctic--followed by richly detailed two-page spreads exploring its depths and the denizens within, as well as seabirds, coral reefs and shoreline critters. Discover saltwater crocodiles lurking in the Andaman Islands, hammerheads gathering in the Atlantic, and the awe-inspiring colossal squid that calls the Ross Sea home.
