Review:

In this suspenseful 3-D picture book by graphic artist Matthias Picard, a boy in deep sea diving gear dives off a wharf and swims out beyond a heap of submerged trash–shopping cart, a derelict car–to explore the ocean, going ever deeper as he observes coral reef life and all manner of sea creatures big and small (and big and toothy in one memorable two-page spread). The adventure takes a fantastical turn when the boy swims through the ruins of a lost city, discovers a door at the bottom of the sea and is caught up in a magical vortex. Where will he end up? Picard's atmospheric illustrations maintain a sense of mystery throughout. 3-D glasses are included.
