Deep: Delve into Hidden Worlds


WINNER of the Children's Book Council of Australia 2023 Eve Pownall Award

From the molten depths of our planet to the frigid depths of outer space to the microscopic depths of our own bodies, welcome to the Deep.

Have you ever wondered what lies beyond the edge of our solar system? Or what lives in the cold depths of the ocean, where even sunlight can't reach?

Come on a journey to the deepest parts of our universe - but be warned, things can get a little strange here. Temperatures are extreme, pressure is intense, and darkness is everywhere.

Even though these distant places seem far out of reach, what we do still has an impact on them. The lunch you eat affects the trillions of microbes living deep in your gut. The plastics we throw away have been found on the deepest parts of the ocean floor. The clues we find underground can tell stories of those who came before.

We know a little bit about these hidden worlds, but there's much more we don't know. So, what are you waiting for? Dive into the deep...
