Deep, Deep Down: The Secret Underwater Poetry of the Mariana Trench by Lydia Lukidis; Illustrated by Juan Calle

Deep, Deep Down: The Secret Underwater Poetry of the Mariana Trench    
by Lydia Lukidis; Illustrated by Juan Calle
Capstone Editions. A Capstone Imprint. 2023

“Deep, deep down, at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean lies a secret place.”

So begins this engaging informational poetry book on the wonders found in the Mariana Trench. 

Vampire squids                                                                                          Seadevil anglerfish                                                                                       Giant Goblin sharks?

How do we find out what lives there? You must go down, down deep in a submersible to find out.

This slim book is loaded with fascinating details about fish, eels, plants that make this place home. 

Complementing the text are wondrous illustrations by Juan Calle. There is a disclaimer in the book that states that “though the illustrations were researched and accurate, they are not scientifically rendered and may not be drawn to scale.”

Included more facts about the Mariana Trench.

A great book to share with students of all ages who are fascinated by what live deep, deep down in the deep, dark ocean.
