2 kids, 1 very crowded swimming pool. But imagination and maybe some magic can do a lot. There is a whole world under the crowd. A giant whale, a mysterious coral island, and much more.
I loved how the kids didn’t give up on swimming, but just went on to discover their own place, their own wonderland.
Though I have to say, wow, that pool is stuffed. Never seen a pool so full, well at least not in real life. I have seen it happen quite often in anime, games, picture books.
The book reads as a movie. As you flip through you can see their movements, you can just see them discover a whole new world.
I also loved the ending, I do hope that these two will see each other more and more.
The art is pretty wonderful, the style is pretty lovely, especially when they hit the magical wonderland of down in the swimming pool. Their aren’t that many colours, but I think that works fine for this book.
My only complaint is that it was over so soon. 😛
All in all, I would recommend this one to everyone.
