The hallmark Carole Vogel style which has won awards for her previous books, makes this new series a winner for young readers. I even love reading them as an adult. Vogel picks the kind of examples kids can relate to - for example, a catastrophic storm in pig farming country to talk about land sources of ocean pollution. She gets all the solid information in, the basic principles and clear explanations, in a way you remember long after because the of fun, vivid stories she tells. Another Vogel hallmark is punchy prose with a wide vocabulary - she is not dumbing down. This series is also beautiful enough to be a coffee table book, with full page color photos of amazing ocean scenes, from giant waves to weird creatures - it is just plain gorgeous. A great gift for any science oriented kid, or one who you'd like to get hooked.
