This book is beautifully illustrated story of the record setting 800ft five of the first Bathysphere in the 1930's. The author/illustrator went to great lengths to build an exciting story while giving children a moment in history. Even the 4 year old loved it.

Wow! Beautiful artwork and a fascinating story. I loved the back matter -- especially the illustrator's note.

I thought there were a few weirdly-written sentences. For example, "He tried breathing through a garden hose in his mouth -- sputtered to the surface." And "He put a washtub over his head to trap air inside -- kept popping up." Obviously, I'm a fan of the em dash -- I use it all the time. But in this case I think it muddied the meaning of the latter clauses. And it seems to me like these sentences would be awkward to read aloud.

The text leaves a few things unexplained, which is either intriguing or annoying depending on the reader. "Mysterious lights twinkled in the distance." What were the lights?! When the bathysphere begins to leak, what stops it?! Did it leak the whole time? Why did Otis and Will's eyes "play tricks on them" down in the deep?

A neat book that would be perfect to read before a trip to the aquarium.

Yes, it is interesting as an architecture book, but I actually love this book for what it teaches us about the period of Westward expansion in US history, when the people of the prairies were trying to determine who they wanted to be.
