About the Author

Mary M. Cerullo has been teaching and writing about the ocean and natural history for 40 years. Her career as an “ocean aficionado” began at the New England Aquarium in Boston and continues today as Associate Director of the conservation organization Friends of Casco Bay/Casco BAYKEEPER® in South Portland, Maine. Describing herself as a “science interpreter,” Mary explains scientific research and environmental issues in ways that children and the general public can understand. Building on her background in marine science, informal education, and communications, she has written 16 nonfiction children’s books, as well as a handbook for teachers on incorporating children’s literature into the science curriculum. Her books have won numerous awards and starred reviews.

Jeffrey L. Rotman is one of the world's leading underwater photographers. Born in Boston, he learned to dive and began shooting underwater photographs in the cold, often murky waters of the North Atlantic. Relentless in his pursuit of perfection, he combines an artist's eye with a naturalist's knowledge of his subjects. The result is a unique and inimitable assortment of images that blur the line between art and science. His work has been featured on television and in books and magazines worldwide, including Life, Time, Smithsonian, Natural History, The New York Times Magazine, and National Geographic.
