      Very mixed feelings about this book.

      I recently took this book out of the library for my grandchildren to read, as the picture on the cover looked bright and cheerful with a smiling teacup and the writing inside was bold with short sentences.

      The book is a 24 page paperback.

      This story starts with a teacup falling into some water on a very rough day. The drawings give the impression of whirling winds, high waves and storms . Unfortunately, the teacup starts to sink but he is rescued by a duck. They then go on an adventure of riding the waves around the world - they see a variety of different things some wonderful like a brightly coloured rainbow and some scary like an octopus. But then the waves seem to get smaller and the sun appears. There is then a weird twist at the end.

      I personally think that this book is not as good as the cover would suggest and it is quite expensive. The story is intended to have a deeper meaning - which is that no matter how big a problem is, it can become smaller with the help of a friend. I thought by the illustrations and the use of different sized fonts it would be aimed at very young children but having now read the book I'm not sure. The illustrations are very colourful with the use of bright blue, yellow and red and depict the rolling waves well but for me the story didn't seem to flow or make sense. I think that this story would appear to children with active imaginations but unfortunately that's not me.
