Professor Astro Cat's Deep-Sea Voyage

Professor Astro Cat's Deep-Sea Voyage

Ben Newman
Flying Eye Books
ISBN: 9781912497126

Professor Astro Cat's Deep-Sea Voyage is a journey through all levels of the ocean from the surface to the deepest trenches. Clearly organised into interesting double page spreads that follow on from each other, this is a highly factual and informative book with superb graphics.

Each spread, from the endpapers to the tiniest detail on a page, is highly visual. The illustrations and diagrams support the text well and ensure that this book is accessible for children of all reading abilities. Small fact boxes share facts about different animals that live in the oceans. Excellent and clear diagrams like the 'food web' allow readers to learn new facts and delight in the knowledge as well as use this as a basis for further research.

The information presented in this text is accessible for KS2 children. The rich text draws the reader in and allows them to become an expert in under-the-sea knowledge with not a mermaid in sight! The reader learns about animals, fish, plants, rocks and the bedrock of the Earth throughout the text and some of the complex scientific concepts are presented in a friendly but not patronising way.

This is a text to enjoy at leisure and to dip in and out of, however, it equally has a place as a research text for a project or science unit. The content is both scientific and geographical and is highly interesting. A must for any primary school library and any child's bookshelf.

64 pages / Ages 7-11 years / Reviewed by Bryony Davies, school librarian
