In book two of the series, Rover and Speck land on a planet with…no land! Follow their adventures on this watery world and learn lots of Fun Science Facts!

“The series is full of giggles, but it’s also whip-smart in its language about exoplanets and gyroscopic stabilizers, and it brilliantly incorporates fun science facts about everything from how water density affects the speed of sound vibrations to the deep sea defenses of a sea cucumber. Its entertaining back matter includes Mad Libs, spot the difference, and creature features. As a quick and entertaining science read for early graphic novel lovers, it is speck-tacular.” Booklist
