The Reef Beneath The Waves

Peter Flint

Who knows what fish really do when we are not watching them ? Maybe they go about their daily lives much as we do ? Maybe they have adventures like we sometimes do - but perhaps their adventures are more exciting than ours!

And, although we live above the waves and they live beneath them , perhaps the characters we meet in these stories are not completely different to you and I. After all, at some time or another we may all suffer from toothache; or gaze hungrily at a delicious-looking cake; or know how disappointing it can be if the lights suddenly go out; or even decide to teach a bully a lesson he won't forget ! So when you next switch on your television and see pictures of a sad-looking polar bear on a melting iceberg, perhaps at that very moment Walter and his friends are figuring out how to solve the problem !"
