Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A companion to a BBC/National Geographic television series, this volume explores five undersea locations and the life supported by each. Marine biologist Holmes takes us to the Galapagos Islands, the Great Barrier Reef of Australia, the kelp forest off the coast of California, Caribbean coral reefs and Hawaii's underwater volcanoes. Fascinating creatures abound in all these waters--giant clams, fish that change sex, huge potato cod, sea turtles, sharks and whales. Holmes and a partner swim with dolphins and humpback whales; they play with sea otters and watch them bedding down in kelp leaves. Describing communication among fish species and the effect of ocean currents, Holmes also discusses aquaculture in Hawaii and a new technique for water-electricity conversion. She notes that in the waters, as on land, flora and fauna are threatened by loss of habitat. The engaging narrative is enhanced by dazzling color photographs throughout. (Mar.)
School Library Journal
YA-- An informative as well as an exciting visual journey to five distinct ocean kingdoms: the Galapagos, Great Barrier Reef, California kelp forests, volcanic seascapes of Hawaii, and the coral reefs of the Caribbean. The entertaining text weaves first-person narration with scientific facts about many different animals and habitats. The superb full-color photographs will inspire teen shutterbugs. Generally, spreads of one to four photographs alternate with text. The index will be well used, since information on many creatures is found in various chapters. Maps are simple and clear, making it easy to see the regions being discussed.-- Sandi Hammonds, W. T. Woodson High School, Fairfax, VA

Dolphins, stingrays, turtles, the marine iguana (the world's only true marine lizard), sperm whales, sharks, sea otters, and all manner of coral and kelp are just some of the many sea creatures and plants Holmes introduces us to in this colorful print companion to the BBC/National Geographic television series of the same name. This inviting volume boasts glorious underwater photographs from five distinctive ocean locations, including the Galapagos Islands, California's astonishingly vast kelp beds, Australia's Great Barrier Reef, and the coastal waters of the Hawaiian Islands. Holmes is an engaging and personable chronicler of the deep, describing the various life-styles of the inhabitants of the watery realm and her underwater interactions with them. The ecosystem of each region is briskly explained, as are the sea animals' methods of communication, hunting, and reproduction.
