A charming children's encyclopedia that takes you on a journey into the deep blue to discover the wonders of the world's oceans! Bursting with up-to-date facts and discoveries, this exciting kid's encyclopedia includes everything from the spectacular seabirds soaring over Earth's vast oceans, to the tiny creatures lurking on the ocean floor. Dive in and explore forgotten shipwrecks, swim with fabulous fish and other awesome underwater animals, and weave your way through secret deep sea homes. You'll travel back in time to meet plundering pirates, scientists, and explorers who changed the course of history, then it's time to learn about lots of very important underwater jobs and how you can help to protect Earth's precious oceans.


I’m slightly obsessed with these DK books that keep popping up in Kindle sales, and even though they are mostly aimed at kids, I still love looking through them. This one was aimed at a really young audience but I think because the subject matter is so good - who doesn’t love the ocean and find it fascinating? - it was still really entertaining for me who is, erm, a bit older than the target reader.
