Where to buy it


Your dog barks. Your cat purrs. Your hamster squeaks. But what do you suppose your fish sounds like? If you think it doesn't make any sound at all, prepare to be surprised. Ocean mammals aren't the only creatures in the water that make noise; fish, shrimp and even lobsters create some of the most interesting sounds you've never heard. In this book, you will be able to scan QR codes to listen to audio files and see videos of different creatures. You will learn how sound travels by performing hands-on science activities involving sound, hearing, frequency and waves. You will also learn fascinating facts about creatures that live in the sea. While you might not be able to "speak whale" after reading this book, you'll be able to recognize the pop of snapping shrimp, the songs of humpbacks and many more amazing sounds of the deep. Sit back and prepare to be wowed.
