Deep Below is a magical tale of unusual friendships and adventure. Deep in the darkest place in the sea, a volcano erupts. This sudden incident forces a group of strange and wonderful deep-sea creatures to set off on a journey of discovery. Along the way they forge unusual friendships, discover a world they never knew existed, and meet challenges they could not have possibly expected as they follow a giant sperm whale in search of a new home. This is a rhyming tale of undersea adventure and discovery like no other.

Follow the funny and heart-warming story of the creatures who live in the midnight zone, a largely uncharted world deep in the sea which is home to some of the planet’s most extraordinary creatures. Meet the wise sperm whale, the nervous sea snail, the accident-prone lantern fish, the wacky octopus, the inquisitive puffer fish and the mysterious hatchet fish: just a few of the amazing and wonderful creatures brought to life through Dee Riley’s quirky illustrations. Inspired by the stories created for his own children, Dov Citron’s fun, rhyming story is a tale of undersea adventure and discovery like no other.
