My 10 year old daughter read this on her own and loved it. She found it to be very exciting (so much so that she recommended her 7 year old cousin not read it yet) and once started, she didn't stop.

The book uses a story to teach about the ocean. A team of explorers set off in the submersible Orion and will face giant squids (who "have the brain the size of a donut!" exclaimed my 10 year old when she read that fact), dolp

This MG "adventure" novel is really a non-fiction book disguised as a novel.....not that that is entirely bad. This is chock full of very good information about the ocean, submersibles, etc. and had wonderful pictures and illustrations included. I did find it odd that for such an informative and educational book that they would include an extinct creature in the narrative. That bugged me a bit. Other than that, I think this will be most enjoyed by 3-6th graders.
P.S. My ocean obsessed 8 year old

The book uses a story to teach about the ocean. A team of explorers set off in the submersible Orion and will face giant squids who "have the brain the size of a donut!" While also learning about nuclear submarines, hydrothermal vents, mythological and extinct dinosaur ocean dwellars, and more. The book is arranged by the depths (in fathoms) that the explorers reach.

Thanks DK for another interesting adventure. My students love your books and this one will not disappoint. I love that it's a suspenseful story sprinkled with lots of information about ocean life. It's nice to have a quiz at the end.
