Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Life in the depths of the ocean, where no light exists? In 1977, scientists made their first discovery of black smokers—hydrothermal vents that spew mineral-laden steam into the ocean. They were surprised to find live sea creatures, such as red-and-white tubeworms and giant clams, teeming around these vents. As with so many other major discoveries, this early exploration wasn’t undertaken to find vents; rather, scientists were conducting examinations of the earth’s plates. Using bold underwater photographs, maps, diagrams, text boxes, and an engaging narrative, the book takes readers along on the 2011 exploration of vents in the Galápagos Reef area of the Pacific Ocean. From page 1, future scientists will be hooked by the excitement of finding newly developing vents and the disappointment of finding older vents that once disappeared under layers of magma. The book is a companion to the five-part National Geographic TV special Alien Deep. Grades 4-7. --J. B. Petty

Alien Deep is an amazing book that explores the wonders of our ocean. I bought this book for several of my friends' children and greatly enjoyed reading it with them. We had so much fun learning about hydrothermal vents and discovering more about the fascinating sea creatures that live in our ocean. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in exploring science, nature and the mysteries of our oceans.
