The Deep End
(Puffin) Ursula Dubosarsky and Mitch Vane
Meet Becky, who is ready to graduate from the Frogs to become a fully fledged Platypus. The problem is that a Platypus must swim at the deep end of the pool. Luckily for Ms Becky she has the kind of imagination that turns her noodle - a swimming aid - into a seahorse, and in no time at all is right out there, riding deep waters on her pretend friend. For small persons who must conquer fear on a daily basis, whether visiting the dentist for the first time, or starting school, this is an engaging encounter. Growing up is not for wimps. Dubosarsky and Vane have several joint efforts under their belts. If our good luck continues, The Deep End will not be the last.
