ABOUT THE BOOK ABOUT THE BOOK
Synopsis

Synopsis

Explore the ocean’s wonders, real and . . . imagined? Dive into this essential handbook to discover some lesser-known secrets of the sea.

What’s the difference between a steamer and a schooner? How would you navigate in stormy seas? How are underwater volcanoes formed? And which creatures lurk in the inky depths of the deepest oceans? All this and much more await eager young oceanologists in this exciting handbook, prepared for Zoticus de Lesseps, the young author of OCEANOLOGY, by his tutor, Professor Aronnax, during their around-the-world journey aboard the mysterious Captain Nemo’s NAUTILUS.

Among the book’s special features:
* four pages of stickers featuring sea creatures, ships, treasure, and diving equipment
* activities for the reader on nearly every spread
* a pull-out letter from Professor Aronnax to Zoticus
* a removable Beaufort scale chart of the winds — an indispensable resource for seafarers!
