The Bermuda Triangle is a dangerous place. Swallowing ocean water can kill you. Sharks can smell blood in the water from more than a mile way. You’ve probably heard these common sayings, but are they really true? This book investigates two dozen questions about our planet’s oceans and explains why some are true and some are false.

Research Notes

“This is the second book I’ve written for the Is that a Fact? Series, and I just love the fun tone and the Q & A format. I learned so many interesting this about the ocean while I was researching this book.

"I discovered that world’s the tallest ocean is in the middle of the ocean and that blue whales are the loudest animals on Earth. I also learned that the world’s oceans contain 20 million tons of gold oldest animals on Earth live in the deep blue sea. The ocean is so much more amazing than I ever realized!”
