This is a book that talks about the oceans and all the species, mammals, and other creatures that can be found in the ocean. It is very informative, and utilizes realistic pictures to go along with the text. I would use this book with older grades. ( )

A graphic anthology of stories featuring twelve endangered sea creatures. ( )

Wild Ocean edited by Matt Dembicki is an anthology of short comics about oceanography and marine biology. Topics covered include: sea turtles, sea horses, manatees, among others.

Like Trickster each story involves a different author and artist. How well one likes this type of book depends on how well one knows the topics covered. For me, Wild Ocean works on so many more levels than Trickster and much of that comes down a better working knowledge of marine biology.

There's a lot of humor tucked in with the educational aspects. There is the sea turtle who is controlled by its passengers. There is a rough and tumble manatee, feared by all the younger ones, who is in love with a pirate. ( )

Edited by a friend and with friends artwork, my rating should be considered with that in mind. ( )
