Synopsis

Basher Science: Oceans Making Waves! by Simon Basher, Dan Green

From Basher, the illustrator who showed the periodic table in a whole new light and gave us his fresh spin on physics, biology, astronomy, rocks and minerals, planet earth and chemistry, comes a book that shines its light into our magical and mysterious oceans. Not content to stay on dry land, Basher takes to the high seas in this friendly guide to everything above and below the oceans. Meet the members of the Shoreline Gang, the Deep-down Dandies, and the characters in the Open-water Crew. Encounter deep trenches, curious creatures, mountains taller than any you will find on land, and the mixers and stirrers that keep the water flowing. Throughout it all, Basher's bold, cheerful artwork pairs with rock solid scientific information to personalize readers' understanding of Earth's mysterious underwater world. Bonus: includes a must-have pull out poster of the oceanic characters
