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.

This is a magical picture book following the latest adventure of Pipkin, the little penguin with big ideas. Pipkin the penguin is always asking questions like 'How Big is a Million?' and 'How High is the Sky?' Now, he has a new question: 'How Deep is the Sea?' A special fold-out poster at the end of the book shows Pipkin diving into the sea, showing what can be found at the different depths. it is gorgeously illustrated by Serena Riglietti.
