ABBEY’S BOOKSELLER PICK —— Biggest, widest, deepest – the Pacific Ocean covers a third of the planet and contains many wonders indeed. This finely-produced book is a tribute to its denizens (both deep sea and shore-dwelling) and its extraordinary beauty, with high quality photos of an appealing clarity and extended captions. Sections cover feeding and mating behaviors, mysteries (both manmade and creaturely) and natural disasters and their impact upon geography and life forms. A fabulous way to explore the ocean! Lindy Jones

——

The Pacific Ocean has been the focus of our fascination for as long as we have lived beside and on it. It covers one-third of Earth's surface - greater than all of the planet's landmasses combined. It contains half of the world's water, hides its deepest places, and is home to some of the most dazzling creatures known to science.

Big Pacific presents the Pacific Ocean and its inhabitants as you have never seen them before, blending a wealth of Ultra HD colour photographs with spellbinding storytelling to take you into a realm teeming with exotic life rarely witnessed up close - until now.
