"Have you ever wondered what mysteries the ocean holds? Prepare to explore the ocean from sunlit shallows to the deepest, darkest depths. Along the way, you'll meet many incredible creatures that are brand-new to science. Dive to a coral reef and spot a new species of pygmy octopus. Travel deeper and discover fragile, nearly transparent jellies as they drift past. Then head down into a world of eternal night. You'll encounter animals that make their own light and zombie worms that feast on the bones of dead whales.

Your adventure is based on the real journeys of scientists involved in the Census of Marine Life. From 2000 to 2010, more than two thousand researchers from eighty-two countries carried out the most extensive investigation of ocean life ever attempted.

Author Rebecca L. Johnson takes readers to research sites around the globe, showing how ocean scientists do their work. Stunning photographs throughout bring readers face-to-face with some of the most mesmerizing creatures on Earth."

From the Back Cover:

""When you pick up an animal and realize that what you are looking at is something no one else has ever seen--a species that as yet has no name--it's humbling and also quite thrilling."--Joel Martin, Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, California

Join scientists on a journey from coastlines to the deep seafloor and meet the weird, wonderful, and unforgettable creatures they discovered along the way. "
