Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Pick up this attractive, large format book and read the subtitles¾"What are the oceans? How do we know about them? What lives in them?"¾and the reader has a good idea of what's inside. Sonntag, with the help of consultant Trevor Norton, a Professor of Marine Biology at Liverpool University and Director of Port Erin Marine Laboratory on the Isle of Man, has packed this pictorial reference atlas with information and illustrations sure to fascinate the reader. Beginning with how oceans work, the author explains tides, waves, storms, currents and zones, and how all of these affect the creatures who live in the vast seas. She touches on ocean exploration, both ancient and modern, before tackling individual oceans—Arctic, Antarctic, Atlantic, North Sea, Baltic, Mediterranean, Inland seas, Caribbean, Pacific and Indian Oceans. Pages are attractively laid out and easy to read for young adult or adult readers. The book contains an extensive glossary and index as well. This reference is a fine addition to any middle or high school library, as well as a find for anyone encouraging the nonfiction-loving reader who wants an overview of the world's oceans. 2001, Aladdin Books, $28.90 and $12.95.

School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up-The first section of this volume examines the formation, evolution, and exploration of the oceans and major seas of the world, along with their impact on weather, climate, and economies. Marine animals and plant life are discussed, as are currents, waves, tides, and storms. The second section delves specifically into each ocean's or sea's history, economy, and marine life. Full-color maps, photos, drawings, and diagrams are included. While there are many interesting facts in the book, it has a disjointed look, both in its text and layout. Being split into two sections results in repetition. Spreads often have seven or eight photos, drawings, diagrams, and maps on them, giving the pages a very busy appearance. It is often difficult to know where to look, and, even more importantly, where to find the textual information for each graphic. Occasionally readers must go from the text to a numbered diagram before being able to interpret a corresponding drawing, a difficult skill. Vocabulary and sentence structure are also at a high level. Content and composition make this volume more appropriate for an older audience in spite of its highly pictorial appearance. David Lambert's The Kingfisher Young People's Book of Oceans (1997) and Philip Whitfield's Oceans (Viking, 1991; o.p.) are better suited to the middle-grade crowd.-Peg Glisson, Mendon Center Elementary School, Pittsford, NY Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
