Description
What starts as a story about a boy with a slight fear of melting in the water (after his teacher tells him he is made mostly of the stuff) becomes a magical fantasy about the wonder of the natural world and the power we have to change it. Waves begin to sing to him, water in the tub obeys his commands, and rainwater acquires the power to clean everything it touches. The author and illustrator of Budgie and Boo, Pigs Ahoy! and Big Brown Bear's Birthday Surprise, David McPhail pictures the story for youngsters up to 8 in vivid and beautifully textured colored pencil drawings.

"Beautifully written, illustrated, and designed, this small gem of a book calls to be opened, touched, and read from its texturally and visually appealing cover showing the boy and a flock of birds at the shore to the rich, color-drenched pictures of the real and the fantastic inside. Capturing the appeal and mystery of water while effectively addressing issues of overcoming personal fear and environmental awareness is no small feat, and this book achieves it."School Library Journal
