Overview

This one-of-a-kind book will thrill Christians and non-Christians alike, with its emphasis on ancient “sea monsters,” those fearsome and marvelous creatures that once roamed the oceans. From the predator Mosasaurus, called the ocean equivalent of T. Rex, to the gigantic turtle Archelon, the beasts who glided through the planet’s oceans no doubt were the inspiration for ancient sightings by mariners who described fantastic encounters on the open ocean.

This one-of-a-kind book will thrill Christians and non-Christians alike, with its emphasis on ancient “sea monsters,” those fearsome and marvelous creatures that once roamed the oceans. From the predator Mosasaurus, called the ocean equivalent of T. Rex, to the gigantic turtle Archelon, the beasts who glided through the planet’s oceans no doubt were the inspiration for ancient sightings by mariners who described fantastic encounters on the open ocean.

Wieland’s riveting text and easy descriptions are complemented by the beautiful full-color illustrations by acclaimed artist Darrell Wiskur. Readers will be amazed that these complex, huge beasts actually lived. The author provides a thoroughly biblical analysis of them as well, insisting that these “dragons of the sea” came into existence during the creation week as outlined in Genesis.

  • Amazing colorful illustrations of sea monsters that actually lived in the oceans
  • Come face-to-face with giant sharks that could chomp a fishing boat in a single bite!
  • See how huge these colossal creatures really were when compared to familiar objects (like school buses!)
  • Learn how and where to find the fossils of these water-dwelling reptiles
  • Could some of these menacing monsters still inhabit the oceans today?
Great!

My son likes the diagrams in the book. He also likes the legends mentioned in the book.
High quality book
Review by Dawn
We picked up this book at a homeschool conference. Using it with other science books, our kids soaked it up and wrote about their favorite parts. We loved the fast facts, the photos, & the illustrations with proportion ratios--an excellent read.
Very cool!
Review by Katie
I bought this originally to do a unit study at some point. My children pick it up often. The pictures and facts are great. I have a curious 5 year old who will ask questions like "how big was a (insert extinct sea creature here)" I can open this book and it compares that creature to a human, a car and so on.
The reading is for an older child in my opinion. 9+? But any child, and age can enjoy this book.
informative
Review by Shauna
This book is part of our Paleontology course. There is so much interesting info on so many creatures I had never heard of or knew existed. The content is great. The accompanying pictures and artwork add to the great info that this book already has.
Love this book!

My 11 year old's review
Review by Lytia
Dragons of the Deep is very interesting, I don't even like the ocean but I really enjoyed this book. I love the Leviathan and reading the measurements it was very done and gave me a lot of information about cool marine animals that have gone extinct.
Great Book

Review by Kathy
We added this book to our morning basket. Both of my children love this book (aged 12 and 9). It is filled with beautiful illustrations.
We love this! Perfect for my children who love the deep sea.
Review by Lauren
We are going to be doing a unit study about oceans soon and this book is perfect for the study. We love the biblical worldview and the analysis of so many deep sea creatures that I never learned about (or have even heard of) when I was going to school. I love that this book caters to my children's interests. It interests them already, so they are in turn very eager to learn! They don't want to put it down. The pictures are vibrant and the text is detailed. You can preview a PDF of the book too, which I love that Masterbooks has that on their website for the books. I would highly recommend this for your dinosaur or deep sea creature loving child!
