'We love nature films for two reasons. Cute animals with long eyelashes make us cry "Ahh", while we also savour savage beasts attacking and taking great chunks out of one another. The odd companions of beauty and death are the main components ever-present in nature and our imaginations. Which is why I applaud Look Closer Ocean. Although there isnít a fluttering eyelash in sight, there are plenty of predators, pack hunters and parasites for those relishing the gory, along with pages of bright coral and reef dazzlers for the timid or squeamish. Bite-sized chunks of information that every child (and adult) want to know include the fact that sea slugs arenít ugly ducklings, but the Kate Moss''s of the sea world; and that even though great white sharks attack people (their jaws are powerful enough to chop us in half), they wonít eat us as they hate the way we taste. This Jaws for beginners paints a briny picture of what happens on top of and below the waterline. If youíve always wondered how a gannet doesnít choke on spikes and scales when gulping down fish, itís because it shakes and juggles them first in its bill so the nasty bits donít stick in its throat. And my favourite nugget is that even the gentle dolphin can stun a fish with a powerful pulse of low-pitched sound. Pictures are large and colourful, so younger children could happily flip through and not worry about the accompanying words. Equally, elder siblings will find this tome ideal for school science projects. A concise, but useful, glossary and index will come in handy and help parents answer inevitable Ďwhatís that?í questions.'
