Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“What sets this pop-up book apart from others is not the pop-ups themselves but the fact that, except for occasional background colors, all the illustrations are photographs.” —Children's Literature
Children's Literature
What sets this pop-up book apart from others is not the pop-ups themselves but the fact that, except for occasional background colors, all the illustrations are photographs. There are dolphins, sharks, conchs, crabs, clown fish, angel fish, porcupine fish, lionfish, and sea horses. There are also jellyfish, octopuses, turtles, penguins, whales, a walrus, a polar bear, and a seal. For each creature, there are a few sentences about its life and habitat. The photographs cover the oceans from the Arctic to the Antarctic, from the top of the water to the bottom, from the waves to the shore. Pop-ups include dolphins leaping out of the waves, a turtle flapping its flippers, and a clown fish lurking in an anemone's tentacles. There is even a photograph showing a conch's eyes. 2005, St. Martin's Press/Priddy Books, Ages 4 up.

Meet the Author

Roger Priddy left school at 16 with just one qualification—in art. He went to Berkshire College of Art and Design and trained as an illustrator. His first job in children's books was working with the publisher Peter Usborne, at Usborne Publishing, and then he worked with Peter Kindersley at Dorling Kindersley, where he spent 16 years. Priddy became Creative Director of DK's Children's Division and was Managing Director of the children's mass market publisher Funfax when it was acquired by DK.

In 2000, he created Priddy Books with John Sargent at St Martin's Press to create innovative and imaginative titles for children, from first books for babies through early reference titles for older children. Since then, over 30 million copies of Roger's 200 plus books have sold worldwide, with five of his books—My Big Animal, My Big Truck, Happy Baby Words, Happy Baby Colors and Puppy and Friends—each selling over one million copies. He is also the author of Big Board First 100 Words; Big Board Books Colors, ABC, Numbers; and Bright Baby Noisy Monsters. His creativity has been recognized with numerous industry awards. Priddy lives in London with his wife Zena and their four children.
