Having just brought Dana to the world’s largest aquarium last week, I’ve decided to raid her extensive collection of books to unearth some thematic books on Marine Life to capitalise on our visit. I was pleased to find these titles which we will be relishing the next couple of evenings. Whenever possible, I’ve also indicated the Call Numbers from the NLB Catalogue for the convenience of those who may not have these titles on hand. Join us as we journey into the magical world of the Deep, Blue Sea!
