School Library Journal Review

Gr 2-4-Beginning with legends of the deep, the author presents brief looks at whaling, shipwrecks, dredgers, laboratories and submarines, and underwater war and construction. Unfortunately, a few awkward sentences and facts leave readers dangling. The illustrations have a retro look. Soft gray-greens, gray-blues, and tannish-pinks are backgrounds to slightly cartoonlike drawings of people and equipment. Halfway between Richard Platt's Stephen Biesty's Incredible Cross-Sections (Knopf, 1992) and Martin Handford's Where's Waldo? (Candlewick, 1997), with a search on each spread and answers at the end of the book, this title brings together many undersea enterprises and will please children who like to pore over detailed pictures of equipment.-Ellen Heath, Orchard School, Ridgewood, NJ (c) Copyright 2010.
