It's very nice to reminisce some of my favorite books back in Elementary. This is a sequel to the story of the trouble-maker kids, Billy Deep and his sister, Sheena. In this story, they are in for more underwater adventures in the Caribbean when they are back with their uncle for another summer vacation.

They meet deeper trouble again starting with the evil scientist -Dr. Ritter (who planned to turn the Deep siblings into a fish), two giant-sized goldfish, and a man-eating jellyfish.

The story was
This book was ok. It's about 2 sibling named Billy and Sheena Deep. Their uncle has this cool floating lab in the Caribbean. Thats where they were staying at for that summer. As they go swimming they encounter sea monsters that are really big. They keep on growing and growing and their fun just got cancelled.
I really loved the first Deep Trouble, but this one wasn't as good. It lacked mermaids. But it was still an entertaining book, and the cover was always one of my favorites. :)
There were some parts in the first chapter that puzzled me a bit, especially when one holds it up against what happens in the third Goosebumps book that follows after this adventure ("Creep from the Deep", Goosebumps Horrorland #2). Since Billy is thirteen in "Deep Trouble II" and only twelve in "Creep from the Deep", does this mean that the latter volume took place earlier, most likely in the same summer as the original "Deep Trouble"? If so, then is "Deep Trouble II" (which is set during the ...more
This one is hard to rate. On the one hand, I have really strong memories of enjoying this one as a kid, mostly for the wild adventure that was not scary in the least. However, rereading it, the adventure aspect is let down by crappy writing and goofy moments not to mention the absurdity of the entire plot. Though I'll be fair and say that in the context of the series, the plot is not even that unreasonable. Overall: quick, tame adventure story with very few surprises and some sequences that will ...more
after reading this book, I became afraid of all kinds of fish. I began staring at my aquarium afraid that my fish will grow huger than me!

Billy and his sister , Sheena, spend each summer vacation with their uncle, Dr D, on his floating lab. They can do many exciting things such as snorkeling and discovering the sea. Something strange began to happen. All the tiny fish began to grow bigger and bigger and they even wanted to eat human-beings! Dr. D discovered that there is Dr Ritter who made the P

Read the goosebumps books and collected them at 10. I use to love them as they were a simple easy read, read multiple books a day.
R.L.Stine was my favourite author and I am currently reading his new book 'Red Rain' some years later. Such great childrens books.

This was one of my first Goosebumps books i have ever read by R.L. Stine. I was expecting way better quality of the book and a better read than i had. The book itself was interesting until i was reaching the end, i could tell the whole story just by inferring what is going to happen. Since I'm a higher level book reader, this was a boring book that should have stayed in the library. When i found out how much the author was trying to fantasize stuff, it was a great putdown for my read.
I adore spooky tales from the deep and Deep Trouble II didn't disappoint!

Perfect for kids that have a low attention span, this book goes all over the place and is great for keeping their reading attention engaged.

I wish there had been more descriptions about the creatures that caused all the trouble, but when reading juvenile fiction you can't have everything.

R. L. Stine has done it again for providing a great resource for helping kids read and build a love for books!

Not at all scary. I didn't even have a bump.
Goosebumps. This is the series that kept me reading through my childhood. More than any other series, Goosebumps kept me interested in reading, and R.L. Stein is a wonderful children's writer. I applaud his efforts, and can't express enough my gratitude for the series.
Actual rating: 2.5 stars. I really wanted to give this book 3 stars but the errors in the science drove me up the wall and the ending was just so bad. It's an interesting story but it's just handled badly.

Didn't care for this one as much as the others. All in all I thought it was a bit too much like the first one. Still it was a funny read and I can see why children would like it.
The entire series is corny, silly, far from scary, and bordering on stupid. But it's ADDICTIVE. It's a genuinely amusing series. Good for kicking back and relaxing.

This so far my favorite book! so much goes on and the ending is priceless and you'd pray for a deep trouble 3!
The first Deep Trouble wasn't one of my top Goosebumps books so I really didn't see why a second was written.
good good good book i love books about this kind of stuff. animals always make the book more funner.
It was a bit better than Deep Trouble I
