Synopsis

The Whale in My Swimming Pool by Joyce Wan

One sunny day, a little boy heads outside for a swim, but his pool is already taken ...There's a big whale in the water and it's not budging! The boy tries everything to get the whale to leave. Nothing seems to work. Not fetch. Not tag. Not even offering the whale his allowance. What's a boy to do? Luckily, he comes up with the perfect solution: if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. This colourful whale of a tale from the talented Joyce Wan is sure to inspire giggles from little guppies.

Reviews

Large, colorful illustrations set against ample space make this appropriate for group sharing...droll touches, such as the shark in the neighbor's pool, keep it fun. --School Library Journal
