Explore an incredible collection of narratives, featuring fascinating facts and stories about the world's deepest seas and oceans. Written by the critically acclaimed TV and radio presenter Miranda Krestovnikoff and illustrated by the wonderful Jill Calder, this stunning book will have you diving into the deepest depths of the blue, exploring the astounding seas and oceans that cover our planet and discovering the amazing animals that populate our waters, including the largest living animal: the blue whale!

An important message in the book is the effects of plastics on our planet and the ways in which scientists are making steps towards tackling this much-talked-about topic. We can all make steps in reducing our own plastic consumption and The Sea will fascinate and inspire families in their quest to understand why it has never been more important to protect our planet.

Let The Sea take you on a watery journey through different marine habitats that we know about but who knows what is out there yet to be discovered? Featuring an eclectic mix of layout styles with incredible artwork throughout, this is a book that will amaze children and families alike with fantastic facts on the astounding seas and oceans that cover our planet.

For as long as Miranda Krestovnikoff can remember, she has always loved to be outdoors. Her passion for wildlife started early on by observing animals in the wild and keeping a veritable menagerie at home in the laundry room! Miranda studied Zoology at Bristol University and even before graduating, secured work at the BBC Natural History Unit. Miranda later became a presenter and this enabled her to travel and present conservation stories from around the globe. Today, Miranda is involved in several charities including the RSPB, National Trust and WDC and has been acclaimed as 'the new David Attenborough' (The Sunday Times) and 'the highest-profile Wreck diver in Britain'. Jill Calder has been working as an illustrator since 1993. She is also a calligrapher, digital artist and lecturer with a love of drawing, ideas, colour, ink, typography, book-binding, and sketchbooks. Jill relishes blending traditional and digital image-making methods as seamlessly as possible to create her award-winning illustrations and lettering. She is the illustrator behind Bloomsbury's stunning The Picture Atlas.
