Down, Down, Down: A Journey to the Bottom of the Sea

Down, Down, Down: A Journey to the Bottom of the Sea Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Caldecott Honor–winning Steve Jenkins provides a top-to-bottom look at the ocean, from birds and waves to thermal vents and ooze.

Half the earth’s surface is covered by water more than a mile deep, but most of this watery world is a mystery to us. In fact, more people have stood on the surface of the moon than have visited the deepest spot in the ocean.

Come along as we travel

down,

down,

down,

from the surface to the bottom of the sea.

Along the way you can see jellyfish that flash like a neon sign, creatures with teeth so big, they can’t close their mouths, and even a squid as long as a bus, which battles to the death with a sperm whale, the largest predator on earth.

It’ll be a journey you won’t soon forget!

Synopsis:

A Caldecott Honor winner provides a top-to-bottom look at the ocean, from birds and waves to thermal vents and ooze. Full color.
