In this non-fiction book for children, Dieter Braun, author of the bestselling works The World of Wild Animals and The World of the Mountains, takes a refreshing look at life below the sea as seen through a magnifying glass. His expressive illustrations take young readers on a tour from the depths of the oceans to the North Sea, with scary sharks, majestic whales and friendly dolphins, giant octopuses, sea turtles, crabs or sea horses and all the things just waiting to be discovered on beaches. Readers can also find out more about the different professions in which people work on and in the seas, marine sports, and also discover famous lighthouses and learn about weather phenomena such as the dreaded sea fog. The colourful illustrations are accompanied by brief texts with facts and figures about the oceans of our planet.
