About this book

Lifesize Ocean offers a unique opportunity to see a variety of amazing creatures at their actual size. Unbelievable, eye-catching illustrations show beautiful scenes and perspectives; the artwork is as vibrant and real as a photograph, but better! Presented in a lavish picture-book style with lyrical text that will fascinate young readers. The underwater adventure takes you from very small copepods to the largest of all – the mighty blue whale. Along the way you will come face to face with an array of underwater creatures including camouflaged seahorses, adorable sea otters and an alarming hammerhead shark. Further information spreads show each animal in its entirety, along with fascinating facts and figures.
