About The Book

Dive into the world’s oceans, exploring sunlit coral reefs, wide open seas, and the murky depths to meet 36 magnificent ocean creatures.

Take a journey through oceans and seas to find 36 magnificent marine animals, from the immense blue whale to speedy flying fish. See fierce predators like the great white shark and orca, as well as truly bizarre creatures such as the giant clam and the sea slug. During your watery adventure you can find out how whales talk to each other, where sea turtles sleep, and how sea stars eat. Marvel at the hooded seal’s extraordinary air bag and at the humpback anglerfish’s glowing ‘fishing rod’.
