Deep Oceans

by Wilhelm Pfeffer, Wendy Pfeffer

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Part of the "Living on the Edge" series, this sturdy picture book takes young readers far below to the deepest depths of the oceans and introduces them to the strange and fascinating sea life that calls this harsh environment home. Along the way, they will also learn how these animals have adapted to the enormous water pressure of the deep ocean, its lack of light, its bitter cold and other challenges faced in the daily struggle for life. The book's ample 10-inch by 10-inch trim size allows its many full-color photos to be reproduced in larger-than-average dimensions, letting readers get a close-up look at the prey-seeking tentacles, eyesight adaptations and bioluminescence systems that help these creatures thrive deep under the ocean waves. The text is set in a large, easy-to-read typestyle that makes this volume a good choice for beginning readers. Also included are a glossary of science words, a subject index and a listing of Web sites and other resources for readers who want to "Find Out More" about this wet, wild environment. A great choice for the classroom or library. 2003, Benchmark Books, Ages 8 to 11.
