About the Author
CHRISTOPHER CAZENOVE was born in Martigues in 1969. A lifelong comics fan, Christophe's first efforts led to a twelve year career … in supermarkets! Towards the tenth year of his employment in frozen foods, one of his projects attracted the attention of comics writer and editor Olivier Sulpice: Predictions of Nostra. After that, he regularly worked for French publisher Bamboo, putting his humor to work on series like Gendarmes, the Fire, the Driving School and finally, THE SISTERS.
Artist THIERRY JYTERY divides his time between illustration, comics, and storyboards. As a comics artist he has worked on his own projects as well as the French series, Harlequin, Pland Dredge and The Heroes of the Navy. He worked as an illustrator for the newspaper Pif and as a story-boarder for numerous cartoon series (including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Tom Thumb, Paddington, Archie, and, more recently, Ghost and Phantom Shaolin Kids).

This book has been described as a graphic novel, but it is not. It is a series of cartoon/comics about life under the sea. Each page and occasionally two page spreads depict a different sea creature or issue that the creatures that live in the sea are dealing with. There are stories about common animals such as jellyfish, sharks and whales as well as some not as well known such as Monkfish, torpedo ray and periwinkle. The book touches on prehistoric sea creatures and various facts about sea animals such as what they eat, where they live etc. the book teaches about life under the sea, but it is done in a fun say with wisecracking animals and funny illustrations. The book touches upon the problems brought on by man as well as including a chart at the beginning book that shows the various ratings of threatened species that you can refer back to. A book that will definitely appeal to middle grades boys. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley.
