What people are saying…

“If you’re hearing the Bee Gees simply from reading the title of this book, you’re not wrong! This book illustrates their song with gorgeous art by Jennifer L. Meyer. Let me just say this: bunny mermaids!”
—Jena Benton

“Meyer takes the swoony love song and pairs it with her gorgeous illustrations to tell a story of passion overcoming obstacles.”


“How deep is your love?
I really mean to learn
‘Cause we’re living in a world of fools
Breaking us down When they all should
let us be
We belong to you and me . . .”

How Deep Is Your Love is a fantastical picture book based on one of the Bee Gees’s biggest hits. The song topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart, remaining in the top ten for seventeen weeks, and won the band’s first of eight GRAMMY awards.

With lyrics by the Bee Gees and illustrations by J.L. Meyer, the picture book tells the tale of two bunny mermaids who meet on a rock and descend into the water together. As the bunnies escape traps, skirt around nets and hooks, and protect each other in this thrilling adventure, they realize how deep their love is. Meyer’s imaginative story compliments the hit song perfectly and will delight children and adults alike.
