What the sea saw

Peachtree, 2006, 1-56145-359-5
  The sea is an ever changing place full of wonderful creatures and extraordinary sights. In this very special picture book we are able to see the sea from many points of view. What does a gull look like as it floats across the water? What do fish see as they slide through the water? What would you see if you sat on a beach during a rainstorm?
  These are just a few of the things this book will show you. With its minimal lyrical text and its extraordinary artwork “What the sea saw” is a joy to look at and to read. Luscious illustrations capture the beauty of the sea and the animals and plants that live in it. From the grand magnificence of a whale to the silvery scales of a school of fish, the reader is taken on a very special journey through the oceans and onto the beaches of the world.
  At the back of the book the author includes well written section which explains the concept of ecosystems: those in the water, those on at the shoreline, and those in the dunes. “Eco-tips” will help readers learn about what they can do to protect these precious natural places.
