The Restless Sea, Carole
Vogel's new six-book series on the ocean, has just been published by Franklin Watts/Scholastic Library.
Stunning photographs combine with gripping tales of adventure and
cutting-edge marine science in The Restless Sea. In her
trademark vivid style, Carole writes about the turbulent rhythm of ocean
waters, the astounding power of shifting tectonic plates, and the eerie
creatures that survive the dangers of their underwater world. She traces
the devastating impact humans have had upon the sea and our scientific
exploration of its depths. Carole tells terrifying true stories about
ships--those that survived and those that were lost--after facing the
natural fury of the sea.
Impact, Ocean Wildlife,
Dangerous Crossings, and
Underwater Exploration. Each book is 80 to 96 pages long.
The Restless Sea is available in hard cover and paperback.
Praise for The Restless Sea Series:
"Dramatic titles and eye-catching covers will draw readers into these
attractive, well-written volumes in The Restless Sea series,
which successfully blend history and science… Scientific subjects are
discussed clearly and concisely, and the texts are as engaging as they
are informative… The appealing layouts make excellent use of color
graphics and photographs." –Booklist
"For years, Carole Vogel has been writing consistently
excellent children’s books on science, nature, and natural disasters.
The Restless Sea is actually a six-book collection for middle- and
high-school students on topics ranging from ocean wildlife, to undersea
exploration, to environmental problems affecting the oceans. The volumes
are generously illustrated with color photographs and the prose, as
always is clear, strong, and eminently readable." – Kenyon College
“Parents and teachers alike should
not be without this handsome set of books. There are perfect for helping
us and our children realize the importance of nature's greatest
ecosystem, the ocean.”
–Diana Bennett, reviewer for Midwest Book Review
