Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elizabeth Young
Our planet is mostly water, yet we have still not explored all the complexities of our oceans. What we have discovered includes a plethora of life. From the beautiful tropics with magnificently colored fish and coral reefs—to the darkest underwater depths where strange, sometimes ghastly-looking creatures live and prowl. This title in the "Pebble Plus: Habitats Around the World" series lures readers in with a brightly colored cover showing coral and a sea star. Once hooked, the pages within burst with large, attractive, full-color photographs from shoreline to deep ocean. Each layer of the ocean is presented along with what lives in that layer. We learn about dragonfish, crabs, sea anemone, and a few other specimens that may or may not be found near your home! Scott presents four zones in easy- to-read paragraphs that will hold even the most active attentions. Following the short chapters are a few "Fun Facts," a helpful glossary, titles for more research from books and websites, and a thorough index. A terrific addition to any library and a must-read for lovers of aquatic life and oceanography. Who knows—maybe a budding Jacques Cousteau will be inspired to discover new secrets in the ocean .
