For fans of Nicola Davies, Yuval Zommer, Laura Knowles and Vicky Woodgate, The Sea: Exploring Our Blue Planet is a vibrant investigation of underwater habitats across the world. Packed with information about environments - from marshes and shipwrecks to the deep ocean - Miranda Krestovnikoff's passion for wildlife is evident and Jill Calder's illustrations are colourful and varied. Presented almost in two distinct halves, the book begins by showcasing a plethora of watery habitats before focusing on the animals that dwell within them. The final page of The Sea features an informative section on the human impact on the seas, particularly through the waste of plastic, and the measures being taken by scientists and the government to find greener, cleaner alternatives. Useful in supporting curriculum topics, this book is also a timely reminder of our duty to protect our planet. The dense text and small font size make this book more appropriate for older readers ages 7 and above and, if you are looking for scientifically accurate depictions of animals in nature, this is not the book for you. However, The Sea will inspire, inform and delight in equal measure. 64 pages / Ages 7+ / Reviewed by Rhiannon Cook, school librarian
