Description

Perfect for quarantine reading with your children!
Where did all the water on our planet come from? How deep is the ocean? What exactly is a fish?
Find out all of this and more in the newest Professor Astro Cat adventure!

Despite covering over 70% of the Earth's surface, the ocean is still roughly 95% unexplored. Join Professor Astro Cat and the gang as they take a deep dive from the sea shore all the way to the darkest depths of the ocean floor to find out more about this mysterious watery world. From coral reefs to deep-sea vents, there's so much to discover on this Deep-sea Voyage.

Editorial Reviews

“The professor’s enthusiasm and Newman’s busy, blocky scenes of sea life and landforms lend extra vim to the adventure […] Just the ticket for budding naturalists with a serious interest in our planet’s remotest reaches.”
Kirkus Reviews
"This STEM-focused adventure is perfect for readers who love the 'Who Would Win?' series and animal fact books by Steve Jenkins"
—School Library Journal
“This book is perfect for children over the age of five. It is very detailed and not something that would be read in one setting. Younger children would enjoy having the book read to them and looking at all the wonderful illustrations.”
—Youth Services Book Review 5-star review

“I love the way this series empowers young scientists to learn as much as they can and take their education into their own hands, one eye always on the environment and sustainability.”
The Tiny Activist
“Ben Newman’s illustration matches all the rest of the Astro Cat series in its retro appeal and clear layout, while Astro Cat’s team of animal explorers explain fascinating ocean facts to young readers in a totally accessible way.” 
—Book Trust  
“Visually appealing and bursting with facts and information the latest offering in this popular series exploring our world is perfect for budding naturalists.”
