Joanne Jessop is a writer and editor of children's educational books, and is the author of several Natural History books. David Lambert is a freelance writer and has written more than sixty titles, mainly on Earth Science and Natural History.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up The authors capitalize on the oversized format, which harbors a text and colorful illustrations that are equally captivating. Basic facts are clearly presented in an orderly arrangement, covering various aspects of oceans, such as waves, tides and currents; how the ocean builds, changes and destroys land forms; ocean life from seaweeds and plankton up through the phylogenetic scale; and man's relationship to the sea. The illustrations are profuse and support the concepts presented yet are attractive enough to foster casual browsing. A comprehensive glossary consolidates the special terms used. Although much is available on this vast topic, this slim volume is a well rounded introduction for libraries needing more. Dennis Ford, Canandaigua Junior Academy Library, N.Y.
