Ours is a blue planet. Ocean covers more than two thirds of its surface, and has a magic that calls us to play, explore and dream. From sailing by the stars to building sandcastles, from great whales to tiny limpets, our fascination with the sea is endless.

In this glorious collection, there are beautifully observed poems about manta rays, puffins and flying fish, harbours, storms, and pearl divers, and exquisite pictures of life in the Arctic and Antarctic Oceans, of tropical islands, ancient shipwrecks and coral reefs.

This book is a celebration of the sea in all its changing moods – and of the special place it holds in the hearts of adults and children alike.
