Book Review - Way Down Below Deep
About the Book
Swim with the ocean's most secret creatures! What mysteries lurk at the bottom of the ocean? Discover some of the world's most fascinating animals, such as anglerfish, luring prey to a toothy doom with a siren's light; vampire squid, peering forth with red eyes; and sea cucumbers, filtering food from the water passing through their bodies. Follow the lanternfish as he lights the way down to the mysterious deep, where whale worms sprout from bones and all varieties of jellies float free. Children will learn about these bizarre bottom-dwellers through clever rhymes and captivating drawings that bring this sunless land to light. Fun, sometimes silly, facts and images accompany each rhyming marine description.
My Take on the Book
Here is a nonfiction story which will take you and your child to the deep dark depths of the ocean. You will learn about some unusual animals such as the giant squid whose body is longer than a school bus. Have you heard of the octopus whose suckers light up? There are unusual worms which actually feed on dead whale's meat and the meat lasts them ten years.
There is so much to learn in this book. David Sheldon's detailed illustrations will make the ocean adventure even more exciting.
