In reply to by Jennifer Rarden

Thank you Jennifer. This book has really had impact of late due to recent campaigning and the state of British rivers. Sadly waters are becoming polluted due to agriculture and water companies discharging raw sewage. We see the book as a "positive celebration of the British riverbank" and encourage all to get out and exploring in a safe manner. This habitat is so precious and we need to protect it. We never set out for the book to have impact in this way but we are absolutely behind the cause and have been teaming up with lots of charities. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Did you listen to the audio book as well? We think its a lovely addition :)

Even I started wondering where the trout was? And had me spell bound! Thoroughly enjoyed and no doubt children will too!
