Following on from the success of Balloon to the Moon, Phosphor's Christopher Nielsen has teamed up with Gill Arbuthnott again on From Shore to Ocean Floor, which will be published by Big Picture Press on 30th September.
"From sandy beaches to mysterious, inky depths, this beautiful book is the story of ocean exploration, from shore to ocean floor. Seen from space, Earth is a swirl of blue and white. The blue is Earth's oceans, which cover 70% of its surface... yet the ocean is the most unexplored region of our planet. From Shore to Ocean Floor is the story of how humans went from building the first boats, to discovering the secrets of the deep. Marvel at incredible scientific discoveries, be dazzled by some of the most exciting new species and admire the incredible men and women who took the very first steps below the surface. This spectacularly illustrated book comes from the author and illustrator duo of the award-winning Balloon to the Moon."
Balloon to the Moon won the 'Children’s Trade 9 to 16 Years' category at the British Book Design & Production Awards, and it's hoped From Shore to Ocean Floor will be just as successful.
