"Stunning photography accompanied by incisive narrative and informed oceanography make 'Ultimate Ocean-Pedia' the go-to juvenile marine reference book. An emphasis on the importance of oceanography to young people, plus its potential for life careers and positive protective actions are apparent throughout." -- Midwest Book Review "...marine biology takes pride of place with page after page of photogenic sea life from tiny krill on up to whales and polar bears. The author profiles a marine ecologist and interviews an oceanographer to cap chapters on modern research, exploration, and industries, then closes with generous lists of sites to visit physically or virtually. A stimulating plunge for casual browsers and serious students alike." -- Kirkus Reviews .
