The Deep End by Rebecca Patterson
  

Synopsis

The Deep End by Rebecca Patterson

The Deep End - home to the best swimmers, diving boards and the odd soggy plaster. But is it true there's also a tunnel in the Deep End that leads to the sea? There's only one way to find out. And it involves keeping your head down, your bottom up, and not swallowing the pool! Full of humour and beautifully observed, children will love this wonderfully witty book from debut author-illustrator Rebecca Patterson.

About the Author

Rebecca grew up in Bolton, and first studied Fashion. After graduating, she worked at an assortment of jobs, including being an classroom assistant in a primary school, while sending out manuscripts for picture books. Once her own children had started school, Rebecca began an MA in Children's Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art and had her first picture books commissioned at the end of the course, including THE DEEP END (published by Macmillan) and MY BIG SHOUTING DAY. Rebecca's work is inspired by her own childhood and her children's lives, with stories often starting as games or something made up in the back of a car to amuse a child. She lives in Cambridge.
