    DescriptionLondon Deep is set in the future, in a flooded London - where rival police forces for kids and adults compete to keep the peace. Half book, half graphic-novel, London Deep has illustrations and strips by artist Paul McGrory on every page. Jemima Mallard is having a bad day. First she loses her air, then two kids sink her houseboat, and now the YPD (Youth Police) think she's mixed up with a criminal called Father Thames. Not even her dad, a Chief Inspector with the 'Dult Police, can help her out this time. Oh -- and London's still sinking. It's been underwater ever since the climate upgrade. All in all the girl they call 'Miss Hap' is deep trouble. 'London Deep is a really amazing story about a twelve year old girl called Jemima Mallard. She lives in a flooded London of the future!! ...This book is a very enjoyable read with lots of drama action and fun. The comic pics are very enjoyable to look at and they fit well with this kind of story.' Abigail -- (aged 10).

    Review quote
    This is a terrifically atmospheric page-turning adventure told through words and comic art. Set in the near future, in a flooded London where rival police forces -- one for adults and one for kids -- compete to keep the peace, it intertwines the story of Jemima, daughter of the Chief Inspector of Police, with contemporary issues of climate change and the environment in an original and provocative way but without sounding patronising. It's a rattling good read and one in which you are sure to be drawn in to Jemima's exploits of survival. Lovereading
