A tiny wave
All readers know how stories can help us to overcome fear. After reading a book it is as if we had won super powers to defeat witches, dragons, wolves, storms ... sharks!
In this book it happens the other way round: a boy is swimming quietly until he is frightened by a word that makes him step back (in this case, a word with many teeth!).
The boy does not want to go back to the sea and needs the help of the reader to overcome fear.
What will happen?
Will the reader dare to dive into the deep sea?
Can it be that courage goes from the characters to the readers, but also from the readers to the characters of the books?
That is what we shall see...
