With this interactive book, young readers embark on an underwater adventure exploring the Great Barrier Reef! Follow the trail of the ocean's most magnificent creatures, including the powerful gray reef shark, the graceful-yet-deadly man-of-war, and the paralyzing blue-ringed octopus. Join marine biologist Warren Wilmott on his expedition and learn why the sea wasp is one of the deadliest creatures swimming in our oceans today and why red lionfish sometimes swims upside down. Filled with incredible animal photographs, maps, interesting information, and detailed illustrations, The Field Guide to Ocean Animals transports budding biologists to another world! The adventure continues as readers assemble seven different animals stored inside the pockets of each page and set up the included diorama for a stunning display.
