Jeannie Baker, incomparable creator of intricate collage illustrations, invites you to take a plunge with Ben, into the sea ... to see.

See what?
Underwater forests of kelp.
Rocks with strangely beautiful textures.
A myriad of fish.
The hidden splendour of one of the Earth's last, most alluringly beautiful frontiers.
And something totally unexpected!

Ben will never see things the same way again. And neither will you.

Award: Children's Books 2000-NY Public Lib.
