About the Author

Jan Leyssens (°1987) is a designer, dreamer and the father of two children whom he constantly bothers with - according to himself - interesting facts (and fabrications) about the world, the universe, and the human being as one of the most fascinating animals on our planet. When in September 2017 TEDxAntwerp asked him on stage, he chose not to talk about his profession as a designer and entrepreneur. Instead he talked about the stories he tells his kids, not about knowing stuff, but about the drive to discover and learn new things. The reactions on the talk were so positive, he decided to write down the stories. Stories inspired by the curious way kids look at the world, and the part before knowledge becomes knowledge.


"Very short and concise with cute illustrations. The deep ocean is something I'm fascinated by and wished it was explored more. It's a good introduction to the two men who helped discover new sea creatures at the time and the effort they made." - Erika Sarutobi

"I loved this picture book because true stories of adventure and learning are so inspiring! The illustrations are beautiful, and I looked up more after reading the book!" - The Center for Gifted

"Wow! I'm ashamed to say that I've never heard of any of this! I found this book to be both educational and entertaining. I really wish I'd had it when I taught the ocean zones. This would've been perfect and really engaging! I really liked the scrapbook style illustrations as well. Wonderful story!" - Heather Justus (Educator)

"A great addition to a school library for students who are interested in learning about the oceans. This book focuses on William Beebe and Otis Barton who discovered fish in the depths of the ocean that had never been encountered before. The illustrations are beautiful and the story is easy to follow." - Antwerp International School
