Start at the tips of the foamy waves, where the sun glints off the water, and go down to the depths of the sea, where the eel's phosphorescence glows in the dark with otherworldly intensity. Below the waves, there are to be seen, among a myriad of living creatures, the octopus, the snail, and the angelfish. Deeper still are the whales, the lobsters, and the sticklebacks. Resting on the floor are barnacles, pompanos, and eels. Returning to the surface, there are still more magnificently depicted examples of sea lifeuntil the sunny beach and golden sand beckon.

A journey through the ocean is imaginatively plumbed in words and pictures. Informative, clear, and graphically lovely, readers of all ages who dive into this book will never look at the sea in quite the same way.

A simple poem and power-packing vocabulary-builder (cerulean, canopy, briny). Great vivid artwork, too.
