Don't think a book can take you on the Ultimate Field Trip? Think again! Imagine going on a week-long exploration of the Bay of Fundy, off the coast of Maine, to play with the puffins, sun with the seals, and get an up close look at what life is like underwater. One group of middle-school kids actually made the journey -- and this book allows you to join their field trip, without getting slimed by seaweed! A fascinating firsthand account of the science of marine biology, this photographic expedition sheds new light on the amazing hidden world under the water. Come along for seven days of sailing, sea creatures, and science that you'll never forget.
