A young girl is spending a summer at the lake and experiencing the worlds she finds (and imagines) both under the water and above. From striped rocks under the surface to water snails, crayfish to gulls, loons and swallows flying overhead she sees all the life around the watery habitat. And who knows what creatures can be found in the deepest waters. A beautiful picture book from the illustrator of Charles.

"Author and illustrator Jessica Bromley Bartram has written a dreamy story accompanied by glorious illustrations that are really the heart of the book. The colors are, for the most part, quite muted, and the illustrations have a soft, dreamy quality to them. The text is quite lyrical, with a lot of alliteration. The story is told from the first-person perspective by the girl in the book. It's a very effective work that will capture the interest of youngsters and those who read to them."
