Publisher's Summary

“If you like your books to be brimming with interesting science, then dive in!” (Tristan Gooley, New York Times best-selling author of How to Read Water)

An intimate account of the beauty, mystery, and amazing science of the ocean.

In The Blue Wonder, marine biologist and diver Frauke Bagusche brings listeners on a fascinating and beautiful deep-sea dive into the ocean. Drawing on scientific discoveries and her own research, she uses playful prose to reveal:

  • Deep-sea reefs that glitter like glass
  • Fish that converse with each other by singing - loudly
  • An octopus that imitates more than 15 other animals
  • The secret behind why the sea glows at night
  • "Weddings” that happen among the coral
  • Underwater “drugstores”
  • And even fish that clean her own teeth! 

Humans know more about the moon’s surface than we do about the ocean. There is so much to be discovered under the sea. With the heart of a poet and the mind of a scientist, Frauke Bagusche reawakens our love for the sea and ignites a desire to protect this vital habitat.
