Publisher: Bloomsbury

Young children will love diving into this vibrant picture book and embarking on a captivating exploration of the world’s oceans. Each double-page spread focuses on a different body of water and highlights some of the creatures and plants that lie beneath the waves. Discover the undersea caves of the Atlantic Ocean, visit the busy shipping lanes of the South China Sea and marvel at the spectacular Great Barrier Reef in the Coral Sea, which is so vast it can be seen from space. From friendly beluga whales and giant jellyfish to tropical islands and enormous icebergs, there is so much to see on this exciting underwater adventure. 

Colourful illustrations fill every page and a world map at the end pinpoints the location of each ocean. A medley of blues contrast with hues of pink, yellow, green and orange, to create a dynamic sub-aquatic world, bustling with fabulous detail. The rhyming text provides pace and rhythm and is wonderful to read aloud. Fun and informative, this marvellous book provides young readers with a lively introduction to the importance of looking after the oceans.
