Uncovering Earth’s Secrets explains all the fun activities which are carried out onboard the research vessel, the JOIDES Resolution, as it explores the seafloor to learn more about earthquakes, volcanoes, the extinction of the dinosaurs and other mysteries of the Earth .

Where Wild Microbes Grow introduces kids to the exciting discovery that there are living creatures under the seafloor. Both are written in delightful rhyme with lovely, bright, cut-collage pictures.where wild microbes grow

The author and illustrator were both inspired by their experiences aboard the JOIDES Resolution, so much so that they have made both books available completely free as a way of giving back.
