Underwater explorer and ambassador for the ocean Dr. Sylvia A. Earle, named a Hero for the Planet by Time magazine, is well known for inspiring young people with her enthusiasm for the sea and its inhabitants. Children will follow along as the author goes ever deeper into the unknown, walking the seafloor in a diving suit named Jim and cruising in her submersible, Deep Rover.

Description

"Earle uses a winning combination of factual information and genuine enthusiasm to encourage a new generation of aquanauts... Whether she is describing an intimate moment of communication with a giant whale or relating her startling discovery of a "strange creature" at 3000 feet (it turned out to be a soda can), Earle interests, entertains, and informs readers. The final chapter makes a gentle plea for protecting marine habitats. Large, full-color, carefully captioned photographs provide a porthole into the wonders of the sea, showing the variety of life on a coral reef or a jellyfish moving through open water. A respectful, sincere, and inviting look at the final frontier." -- Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal
