Lost in her ever-changing forms, 'Water' questions who she is after an encounter with a creature in an underground cave. Water seeks all parts of her cycle for answers, which makes her feel overwhelmed and confused. However an 'old tree' helps her to understand her place in the world and her many interconnections with all living and non-living things.
Written from the point of view of Water, the story follows the character's journey through the water cycle, prompted by Water's questions: Where do I belong? Why am I here? And where am I going? The effective premise gives way to weaving - potentially dry scientific - details of the water cycle into a poetic and whimsical story of self-realisation.
A story about the water cycle suitable for children aged 3 and above.
