"How would you color in a drawing of the sea? Well, it depends on whether it is at night or at sunrise. Ostensibly an activity book, this volume is full of subtle marine-themed lessons about physics, geography, biology, and, of course, color theory."
          - Metropolis

Did you know that water covers nearly 70 percent of the earth and that nearly 70 percent of the human body is made up of H2O? How about the fact that more than half of the earth's species live in water? Or that the sea reflects the sky, so is most often blue, but can also appear green, gray, turquoise, or brown, depending on light, algae, or plant life?

Each page of Drawing in the Sea will engage young readers of all ages with fun facts about the intricate world of the sea.

With the help of witty pen and ink illustrations, readers learn how to fold an origami boat, sketch fantastical fish, and draw daring tattoos on a sailor's arm, while discovering more about the substance that is so essential to our lives that it's sometimes called Adam's ale.

Drawing in the Sea is intelligent fun for young readers of all ages.
