Synopsis

Splish, Splash, Splat by Rob Scotton

Splat the Cat makes waves at the pool in this hilarious new picture book - perfect for children learning to swim! Splat does not want to have a play date with Spike. Spike will break his toys and eat all of his fish-shaped sweets. And he does not want to learn how to swim - water is horrible, scary, and wet! He's sure that this is going to be the worst day ever. But when the rest of their classmates rush straight into the pool, Splat and Spike find that they may have more in common than they thought. Will Splat overcome his fear of water and get into the pool? And how can he help Spike to do the same?

Reviews

Praise for Love, Splat: This heart-warming story should melt even the flintiest cynic. Scotton's frenetic illustrations are spot on and vivid enough to stroke. Buy this book for anyone you 'like more than fish fingers and ice-cream'... Daily Mail A very sweet story, beautifully illustrated. Norwich Evening News Praise for 'Russell the Sheep': 'Russell the Sheep is completely engaging and bound to become a star of the future.

'This is the delicious tale of a sheep who can't sleep.'
