The Lovereading4Kids comment

Pipkin is a gorgeous penguin who is very inquisitive, always asking questions and seeking adventure. So his mother suggests he dives in to take a look under the ice. Of course adventurous Pipkin does more than just that; he wants an answer to his really big question - how deep is the sea? So he heads deeper and deeper asking the same question to everyone he encounters, from seals and whales until he meets a sea dog in a submarine and that’s where his adventure really begins. Going down and down in the submarine it gets darker and darker with fewer and fewer things to see until they hit the sea bed where all around him are towering mountains. His mother is very pleased to see him back and even more pleased to hear of his epic adventure to the bottom of the sea.

There is a fantastic long, long poster at the back of the book, which shows how far pipkin went and how deep the sea really is. Wonderful.

Reviews

'A delightful new adventure for Pipkin, the little penguin with big ideas. As with previous titles in the series How big is a milion? and How high is the sky? this book delivers a lot of information in the disguise of a gorgeously illustrated story packaged in an attractively gifty padded hardback. Very nicely done' - The Bookseller; 'Pipkin is a gorgeous penguin who is very inquisitive, always asking questions and seeking adventure. There is a fantastic long, long poster at the back of the book, which shows how far Pipkin went and how deep the sea really is. Wonderful' - Lovereading4kids'
