About the book

Clark and his brother and sisters are stuck on their front porch on a rainy spring day. When a stuffed bear is flung off the porch into a puddle, the backyard becomes an ocean, and Clark, with some help from his siblings, embarks on a deep-sea diving rescue mission. 

      Full of classic charm, this satisfying fantasy is one of four small books each starring a different sibling and season by the children’s book veteran R. W. Alley. Look for Mitchell on the Moon and Annabelle at the South Pole in Fall 2016.

Reviews

"Alley gives readers a story of creating alternate imaginative worlds to escape boredom and enjoy independent adventure. Thanks to transitions from pale to rich watercolors throughout the story, readers can follow Clark and his emotions." 

—Kirkus 

 

"Alley’s breathless narration hypes up the action (“Triple horrors! The Million-Mile Eel trapped Clark by the fins!”), and his mixed-media illustrations follow suit—the soft pastel palette of the quiet porch scenes gives way to electric colors that energize Clark’s underwater escapade." 

—Publishers Weekly
