Reading Australia has published a tremendous Teacher Resource for our multiple award-winning all-ages graphic novel, The Deep: Here Be Dragons written by Tom Taylor, illustrated by James Brouwer and edited by Wolfgang Bylsma.
The Deep is that rare thing; an Australian comics success story. A concept that grew from a conversation into a pitch, into award-winning comics that then became a major worldwide animated television series, helping to propel writer Tom Taylor to comics superstardom around the world.
At the core of The Deep stories are curiosity and respect, as the Nekton family find their way into perilous misadventures and how they — as individuals and as a family — resolve the dangers they encounter and protect the waters they inhabit.
About Reading Australia
Reading Australia was created by the not-for-profit Copyright Agency with the goal of making it easier for teachers, through their passion and skills, to spread a love for Australian texts. They believe that every society needs to tell their own stories and the best way to achieve this is to provide quality and insightful resources to support all teachers of English in bringing Australia’s rich and unique literature into classrooms.
Reading Australia champions Australia’s rich literary history and presents thoughtful, stimulating, challenging, and sometimes provocative literary works for Australian students.
It reflects the stories we tell as a nation and connects teachers with diverse and robust voices.
