Watch out for muddy puddles!
Because you never really know ...
what there might be lurking
down in the depths below.

Have you ever thought about what could be in the world below the surface of puddles? Join in as one boy finds that some are very, very deep; some are teeming with particularly peckish crocodiles - eek! - and some icy puddles hurt your bottom when you slip - ouch! Others are full of frogs, underwater kings, lost socks and - WATCH OUT! - the BIG, BAD duck ...

A joyous celebration of the imagination and splashing in puddles by the star of CBeebies' Mr Bloom and the bestselling illustrator of Aliens Love Underpants.

What a great book, the illustrations were nice too. This about all the things you find jumping in puddles. My little boy loved the big deep one, where he went deep past all the different things. A really fun story which we loved.

I recognised the artwork of Ben Cory straight away. My children love 'Aliens Love Underpants' and when they found out that Mr. Bloom wrote this book, they were very excited! The artwork is fantastic and it is a very adventurous story about what may lurk in ordinary looking puddles! We loved the crocodile and the rubber duckie, overall a very enjoyable bedtime story.

This book is definitively a new favourite in our house. The children loved listening to the story and the imagination behind. They couldn't wait to guess what would happen on the next page. Mum loved the graphics and the easy flowing text and the fact that my kids look into puddles now before jumping in!

I loved this book. It talks about what might be found hiding in the depths of puddles (including a big bad rubber duck). The text is clever and has a great flow. And the illustrations are humorous and fit perfectly with the text. I really liked the pages with the deep puddles where you have to turn the book sideways to follow the story. The dangers are done in a way that isn't scary (even at the very end, which I'll keep secret for you). It's a laugh out loud book that my 4 year old enjoyed. I took it in to read to 1 and 2 year old children at work, and they enjoyed it, too. It was perfect after a night of storms. The best part is that it is one of those rare children's books that adults can enjoy, too. That's wonderful, because I can see myself having to read it again and again.

This book has become a firm favourite in our house. My son loves the bit when the little boy jumps in a deep puddle & goes swirling down past fossils & treasure. Really nice illustrations too!

The book was bright and the pictures were captivating for a young child. The story was simple and easy to follow and the character  in the book was easy to like.
