Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dive in! Brand new Augmented Reality technology lends amazing 3D computer animation to this incredible look at the ocean’s giant creatures. Sharks, whales, and giant squid come alive with the help of special cards packaged in the book and a simple computer camera, allowing readers to experience life under the sea as never before.

 

Monsters of the Deep gives readers an intense close-up encounter with some of the biggest animals lurking in the ocean. Go shark diving in a cage and with the tap of a key, pull up amazing facts about the species in front of you. Augmented Reality is so new that that this book will be cutting edge in the U.S. Staying true to its heritage, of course, National Geographic brings stunning photography and fun information together with this new technology for a dynamic experience that takes readers off the page and into the deep. Even without a computer, visuals and detailed facts are so compelling that the readers will be completely drawn into the mysteries of the underwater world.

Review:

"The deep-sea 'monsters' in this interactive book spring to life by positioning augmented reality 'action cards' in front of a webcam. In addition to the book's digital component, photographs, sidebars, and charts provide detailed descriptions of the habitats, predation, and endangered status for such animals as the giant Japanese spider crab (which can grow to 12 feet, from pincer to pincer), whale shark, manta ray, and blackdevil angler fish. Though the emphasis is on science, a few lurid descriptions ('The cocktail of poisons in a box jelly sting causes muscle cramps, damages nerves, and eats through skin, leading to terrible pain, paralysis, and heart failure') should help hold readers' attention. Ages 8 — 12." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
