A scattershot but revealing dig beneath our planet's surface, illustrated with a mix of photos and schematic cutaways.
Kirkus Reviews

Elementary boys will devour this nonfiction book about everything underground from tombs to cities and much more.
Library Media Connection

Jane Price gives curious young readers a sense of realms hidden from most of us ... Photographs convey the grandeur and amazing formations of certain caves, and James Gulliver Hancock's cross-section illustration of a cave city shows how it was organized in a way no photograph could.
The Washington Post

Readers who dream of spelunking or who simply want to dive into a well (of information) will find much to ponder---bats and naked mole rats get spreads of their own, as does the curse of King Tut and the 2010 Chilean mine collapse---in this lively and accessible exploration.
Publishers Weekly

The informative text and illustrations are sure to hold the attention of readers and spark interest in further research of the topics.
School Library Journal

Visual appeal, high-interest text, and a wide scope of information inspire young readers to dig deeper---literally.
