“The immersive, multilayered art teeming with intricately drawn crowds of sea creatures set on ethereal backgrounds and the feeling of grand scale admirably capture the majesties under the sea.” ―Kirkus Reviews
A scientific team has boarded the submarine Oceanos to explore the ocean’s depths. Suddenly, it gets caught in a violent storm, causing it to drift thousands of miles off course and embark on an ocean adventure that young children can join.
From the glittering surface of the sea to the darkness of the abyss, Deep in the Ocean will take readers on a bewitching journey through fascinating waters—where some are warm, colorful, and crowded with sea creatures, and others are mysterious and turbulent.
“The whale shark glides over the coral where All the tropical fish live. How beautiful! The anemone protects the clown fish. The leopard whiprays dip and swirl, While the marine turtles play hide-and-seek. What a paradise!”
This is a one-of-a-kind colorful adventure for any child fascinated by the sea and sea creatures, or for a parent or teacher looking to create excitement about nature and the ocean. With six colors of ink (including neon pink and metallic silver), this beautiful, oversized, and sturdy board book will elevate young reader’s curiosity into real excitement about the ocean that covers two-thirds of the Earth, and the life beneath its surface.
A free downloadable soundtrack allows readers to feel even more fully immersed in this beautiful underwater world. Find it at abramsbooks.com/DeepInTheOceanSoundtrack.
