The deep! : wild life at the ocean's darkest depths / by Lindsey Leigh.

Leigh, Lindsey, (author,, illustrator.).


"Did you know that there are animals that are completely transparent? That some tube worms live for 1,000 years? That the Pigbutt Worm is also known as the "Flying Buttocks"? Or that there is a type of sea cucumber that is nicknamed "the headless chicken monster?" These are just some of the scientific facts, presented comics-style, that kids will pore over again and again. The Deep! is a rollicking survey of animals that live in the deepest part of the ocean created in an exciting graphic nonfiction format. The first-person commentary by the animals themselves cover a wealth of facts from the surface of the ocean to the darkest trenches. And the beautiful full-color illustrations bring them to life. From animal adaptations like bioluminescence and giant flashlight eyes to the habits and habitats of the Pram Bug and Dumbo Octopus, The Deep! will keep readers fully engaged with life at the bottom of the sea"-- Provided by publisher.
