Synopsis

Oceans by

Ripley's Twists bring a fun, engaging and uniquely Ripley's approach to a whole range of topics, from the human body to space. Each title blends stunning full-colour photographs and illustrations with clear explanations and extraordinary facts that are guaranteed to inform and to entertain. In Oceans , you will find: key information - everything from lazy floating blobfish to how to survive a shark attack; intriguing bite-size facts - Atlantic giant squid and colossal squid have the biggest eyes of any living animal, and each eyeball can measure ten inches across; real-life stories - like the man who free dives, with no fins or oxygen, to a depth of 282.15 feet; 'Big word alert' glossaries - clear and straightforward explanations of difficult words such as 'vertebrate'; and, stunning photographs and detailed diagrams.

About the Author

Robert LeRoy Ripley was an American cartoonist, who created and developed the world-famous Ripley's Believe It or Not! cartoon strip in the years after the First World War. He travelled the globe in search of unusual objects and stories, and built up an extraordinary collection of everything from shrunken heads to dinosaur eggs and iron maidens. These are now exhibited in Ripley museums around the world, including one in London's Piccadilly Circus. The Ripley's Believe It or Not! annual has become an international best-seller.
