Wild Oceans: A Pop-Up Book with Revolutionary Technology Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The three-toed sloth is topsy-turvy most of the time. The upside-down jellyfish rests on its back to feed. Skunks do stink-warning headstands and mallards upend in this colorful, interactive exploration of the hows and whys of upside-down animal behavior. In this unique pop-up book, pull tabs, lift-the-flaps, sliding doors, and other interactive elements, along with striking, texture-rich, cut-paper artwork by theand#160;Caldecott Honor artist Steve Jenkins to reveal how, for most animals, an occasional flip or dip is a matter of survival! (The fascinating glossary of twenty-six creatures is best read right-side up.)

Review:

"This vibrant pop-up from the veteran paper engineers explores the vast world of ocean biology from tide pools to deepest depths. Flaps, sidebars, and panels describe the characteristics of specific animals ('Sea stars use hundreds of tiny suction cups to eat, move, and cling to rocks'), and each spread features pull-down panels, which focus on topics like bioluminescence. Large 3-D compositions--a splashing blue whale, a toothy purple anglerfish, a leopard seal--leap off the richly layered pages, representing the abundant diversity of the sea. A visually dynamic book that seamlessly blends education and entertainment. Ages 6 — up. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

An amazing underwater adventure with revolutionary pop-up technology from Lucio and Meera Santoro, the creators of Journey to the Moon and Predators

Synopsis:

From the firebelly toad to the wooly monkey, Steven Jenkins and Robin Page introduce a world of animals that spend quite a bit of time upside-down in this innovative pop-up book.

Synopsis:

Journey into the mysterious world under the sea as 3-D pop-ups swing off the page, bringing to life whales, dolphins, angler fish, and much more! Filled with stunning art and interesting facts about various oceanic zones--such as coral reefs, the frozen sea, the deep sea, and much more--Lucio and Meera Santoro take readers on an interactive and imaginative journey deep beneath the surface of the blue sea!
