The Lovereading4Kids comment

A stunning exploration of the fascinating world of the oceans unfolds in the brilliantly creative pages of Oceanology. Purporting to be the true account of the journey of an explorer in 1863, every aspect of the incredible watery worlds is described in pictures and in diagrams revealing all kinds of curious and usual details. There are dairies and notebooks, maps and charts, guides to flora and fauna and much, much more waiting to be opened and lifted from the pages. If you’ve not met an Ology title before then a feast of fun is guaranteed together with hours of delight.


Oceanology: The True Account of the Voyage of the Nautilus by Emily Hawkins and A. J. Wood

Oceanology purports to be the true account of the incredible voyage under the sea undertaken by a certain Captain Nemo in his submarine the Nautilus in 1863. This notebook was compiled by the ship's 16-year-old research assistant, Zoticus de Lesseps, and records his findings - from the wonders of the natural world to the undersea kingdom of Atlantis. The only member of the expedition to return alive, and forever haunted by the truth of his discoveries, he bequeathed this journal to a novelist named J Verne.
