The story of the ocean is as old as the earth itself. Overfishing, pollution, and oil spills have highlighted the need to take better care of our oceans so that the story can continue to be told. With poetic, lyrical text and gorgeous illustrations, this book will introduce the ocean story to the youngest listeners and offer a platform for questions and discussion from older readers. The Ocean Story was awarded Creative Child magazine's 2011 Creative Child Award Seal of Excellence and the 2012 Francis and Wesley Bock Book Award for Children's Literature.

About the Author:

John Seven grew up in the 1970s, when science fiction movies and TV shows were cheap and fun. His favorites shows were The Starlost, Land of the Lost, and Return to the Planet of the Apes, and he loved time travel most of all. John collaborated with his wife, illustrator Jana Christy, on the comic book Very Vicky and a number of children’s books, including the multi-award-winning The Ocean Story, A Year With Friends, A Rule Is To Break: A Child’s Guide To Anarchy, and Happy Punks 1-2-3. John was born in Savannah, GA and currently lives in North Adams, MA with his wife and their twin sons, Harry and Hugo, where they all watch a lot of Doctor Who and Lost together.

Review:

This lovely engaging story tells the ""ocean story"" of fish and other animals that inhabit our planet and how oil spills and other disasters are killing the animals and destroying the planet. The pictures are beautiful. The colors are rich and realistic an --Children's Book a Day blog

How do you write a story about one of the greatest, biggest, and most delicate stories of all time: the ocean? Husband and wife team, author John Seven and illustrator Jana Christy, make a mighty effort to relate a readers involvement in The Ocean Story --Vegbooks Blog
