Ocean, A Photicular Book

(4 customer reviews)



New York Times bestseller, Ocean is like being on a dive. Using Photicular technology, each image is like a 3-D movie on the page, delivering a rich, fluid visual experience. Open the book, and the reader is swept into the magic of an underwater world, face-to-face with a floating Yellow-Banded Sweetlips; with a glow-in-the-dark Deep-Sea Anglerfish; with a Sea Horse swaying in balletic motion; with a Sand Tiger Shark gliding along the ocean floor, its gaze haunting, its hook-toothed mouth gulping open and closed.

The text by Carol Kaufmann enchants with its descriptions of coral reefs; a journey on Alvin, the 17-ton submersible; and a meditation on our oceans. Then, for each creature, she writes a lively and informative essay, along with vital statistics—size, habitat, range, diet, and more.

The Photicular process uses an innovative lenticular technology, sliding lenses, and original four-color video imagery. The result is like a movie in your hands—the dance of life in a book.

    This is a very fun book filled with information on sea life and not just for kids, that is for sure. When you turn the pages, the images come to life.

      We had a little girl giggle with excitement the other day while she was showing the book to her dad just praying he’d buy it…she said “Look Daddy, it’s magic!” What better testimonial, right?

    I bought this book for my 2 year old great niece. She is intrigued by the 3D pictures and so is her dad!
