My boyfriend is interested in these types of books and had got the Dragonology one for Christmas and so I figured I would try another of the series.

Format: Hardcover
It all starts with a letter. Young Zoticus deLessups, in a message dated March 25, 1863, was invited by Professor Pierre Aronnax to join him as his assistant on "an important voyage of discovery." Aronnax, a friend of the 16-year-old deLessups's father, hopes the trip, one of oceanic research, will be educational and productive. Zoticus sets out from Marseille to Cadiz where he finds The Nautilus and Captain Nemo awaiting his arrival. So begins the richest and most inventive book in the 'Ology series so far.

Combining science, history and adventure, OCEANOLOGY explores the facts and fictions of the earth's oceans and uses the Jules Verne classic TWENTY THOUSAND LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA as a clever framework. The idea here is that the fictional Professor Aronnax, Captain Nemo and others from the Verne novel were real figures, and Verne himself learned about them, and the fate of The Nautilus, from Zoticus deLessups (Verne having taken the name from the famous developer of the Suez Canal, Ferdinand deLessups), who lived out the rest of his life in an asylum after having created the journal that is OCEANOLOGY. As far-fetched as the setup seems, it works well here. For young readers there is the adventure of Zoticus to draw them in and the science of the ocean to keep them fascinated.

Though the book is the supposed record of the journey, it is filled with amazing information on marine biology (a seabed map, charts on ocean life at various depths, introductions to concepts such as the thermal cycle, surface currents and much, much more). Readers will also glean knowledge about navigation and navigational tools, the history of diving, coral reefs, plate tectonics, and fanciful topics like mythical ocean beasts and the myth of Atlantis.

When I came across this book in a store I knew I had to purchase it for my 5 year old. I can't even begin to go through the wonders found inside.....The Transatlantic Telegraph Cable, the "Web of Life", and a portholoe into the Deep. There are so many educational topics to spark a child's sense of wonder. He is on the young side for the material but this will allow the book to grow with him. The illustrations, different textures, and pockets within will certainly hold his attention.

Great book, I am very happy to have come upon it.

I purchased this book for my twelve year old grandson. I got hooked and read the whole book before I gave it to him for Christmas. I would highly recommend it to boys and girls of all ages and anyone who has an interest in the ocean. There is a new surprise on every page with stories, letters, pictures and so much information about the oceans and their inhabitants.
