Description

SPLOOOOSH! We're off on an exciting underwater adventure in our submarine to meet the oceans and seas of our blue planet.

Join in with the rhymes and get ready to spot all the smiley-faced, friendly oceans, from the Atlantic and deep Pacific to the sparkling Mediterranean. Little ones will have a whale of a time (and be back in time for bed!) in this striking, story-led picture book.

This bold, bright follow-up to the acclaimed picture book Meet the Planets is packed with sea creatures from dolphins and beluga whales to turtles and manatees. The ocean is a vast treasure-house, threatened by plastic waste and pollution, and this picture book is the ideal introduction to the importance of caring for it. It's perfect for all would-be explorers!
