Oceanology — a book with a difference

Perfect Picture Book Friday will begin next week (although since that’s the day I’m involved in Erik’s blog tour, my first PPBF pick won’t be posted until September 20th.) Today I’m sharing a book that, although it has 32 pages like a picture book, and has text and illustrations, it isn’t a picture book. The publisher calls it a “novelty book” and it’s certainly novel, in the sense of being unusual. Unfortunately, the cover image I was able to find doesn’t give the wonderful holographic effect of the actual cover, which makes you feel as if you’re looking out of the porthole of a submarine to the three-dimensional ocean world beyond.
