Drop into the Ocean is a beautifully illustrated children's science book for kids aged 6 and up. Join Neptune the jellyfish on a sensory journey through the world’s oceans and seas with a narrative that weaves in onomatopoeia and a series of fun facts. 

Welcome to the ocean! It covers over 70 per cent of our planet and is home to literally trillions of animals and creatures. Our tour begins in the crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea. From here we will meet many different marine creatures, frolicking and exploring the world’s interconnected oceans with us. We’ll pay a visit to the Great White Cafe, play and romp through the kelp forests, get lost in the depths of the Mariana Trench, and sing with the whales. Our oceanic adventure comes to an end on sunny Australian shores.
Featuring whimsical illustrations by Marta Tesoro and a shiny cover, drop in and come along on an immersive journey of oceanic discovery. There’s so much to see, hear and do in the ocean.
