“...I recently bought children's books by Hawaii's National Marine Fisheries Service scientist Jeff Polovina. I haven't met Jeff, but I know his name from some of his 115 research papers, and the awards they garnered, in his 30-plus years of studying the Pacific Ocean.
Jeff recently branched out from his groundbreaking research to write a couple of stories for budding marine scientists in the form of Alexis, an Ocean Detective Agent. The children's e-book series piqued my interest because I didn't know the answer to one of Jeff's mysteries and had to buy the nicely illustrated book.”
I read this book to my daughter. It's got a great story line with interesting marine science facts.
