Why do octopuses have eight arms? Why do crabs run sideways? Are jellyfish made of jelly? Find out all this and plenty more in The Big Book Of The Blue, a wonderfully illustrated book about sea creatures.
It starts by explaining how different types of animals can breathe and live underwater, and the different families to which they belong. Then, meet all sorts of slippery, shimmery, strange and monstrous species, from sea turtles and whales to sharks, rays and seahorses. Learn about different habitats, endangered animals, how to spot creatures on the beach and help save marine life.
