Under Water, Under Earth (Hardcover)
I wish this book existed when I was a child. Under Water, Under Earth almost demands to be read while lying sprawled out on the floor, with face buried deep enough in its oversized pages to forget your surroundings. Truly a book to get lost in.
To open its covers is to peel back the surface of the world, revealing, layer upon layer, the fascinating stuff beneath your feet. From one cover, explore the depths of the ocean: sea creatures, submarines, scientific explorations, and so much more. From the other cover, dig deep underground to find bugs, caves, fossils, magma, and eventually, the center of the Earth itself.
Under Water, Under Earth holds a dizzying amount of information, but all ingeniously organized to make each page spread a new landmark, each page turn a revelation.

Students will return to this work again and again. Consider for injecting life into introductions to earth science.
—School Library Journal (starred review)
Through accessible cartooning, the husband-and-wife duo brings a light, playful touch to topics like water pressure, plumbing, and fossilization. Readers will feel like scientists and explorers with each page turn.
This creative duo is the one behind the bestselling “Maps” — and has come up with another book that will become an object of obsession. Kids (and parents) can pour over it much in the manner of the old Richard Scarry books.
Under Water, Under Earth is terrific, well-written, profusely illustrated, informative, engaging.
