Product description

Review

A refreshing dive past some of our world's marine wonders.-- "Kirkus Reviews"

Cheerful, witty, and absolutely enticing... The oversize pages featuring creatures from the deep blue sea are filled from top to bottom with illustrations encompassing a palette of blues [and] drawings are unique in their crisp details and dizzying compositions. Factual and visually accurate, this sure-fire kid magnet should prompt a lot of interest--and requests for multiple readings. Just be sure to allow plenty of time for poring over each page.-- "Booklist (starred review)"

Zommer's illustrations are more whimsical than naturalistic--creatures peer at one another with expressive, close-set eyes-but fun, accompanying captions provide factual insights... The portrait layout enhances the sense of ocean depth... Zommer introduces a seek-and-find element, which will lead readers to discover additional faces and surprises within the teeming underwater scenes.-- "Publishers Weekly"

Book Description

From the creator of The Big Book of Bugs and The Big Book of Beasts, a magical first book of the ocean to share with young children

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully illustrated book
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 26 May 2020
This book is so much bigger than I thought it would be. It is beautifully illustrated and my 8 year old son and 5 year old daughter love it. There is some interesting facts about the different fish that I didn’t know either! Also good for raising awareness of the dangers of plastic in the sea and making them think about the use of plastic. Will definately be buying other books by this author.
