The world of sea creatures and plants that inhabit the Arctic and Antarctic regions is depicted in this book, with fine drawings and descriptions in alphabetical order. Beginning with Adelie penguins and anemones, the author/artist proceeds through kelp plants and killer whales, pelagic clam worms and puffins and many other fascinating forms of life, ending with zooplankton and zostera marina. The concise descriptions give geographical locations, habits and specific colourations. While the drawings are handsome as black-and-white designs of interest to readers of all ages, no child will be able to resist colouring them. The Polar Seas Encyclopedia Colouring Book will be welcome for a nature study, whether at home, in school or in libraries.Other natural history books of interest are listed on the inside back cover.
