Plunge into Lonely Planet Kids' The Ocean Book to travel around the world and discover amazing animals, birds and plants who call the ocean home, explore the ruins of shipwrecks and underwater cities, meet marine biologists and fishers who work on the water. You'll also come ashore to discover amazing islands and beaches, and learn what it's like to live in a remote place in the middle of the ocean.
