Water Boy

Written by Ros Asquith

Illustrated by Ian Andrew

Featured Books for 3+ readers

Water Boy Synopsis

Ros Asquith’s deceptively simple text shows us the world through the eyes of a young boy on his various adventures.

One moment he’s a ‘water boy’ at the seaside, the next he’s a ‘farm boy’ playing with the animals.

Ian Andrew’s beautiful illustrations perfectly capture the moments of play and exploration we share with the child in this evocative tale of long summer days and adventure.
