Scramble is a young otter who can’t swim. With the help and guidance of his family he starts by taking one day and one small step at a time. From hopping along the bottom of the river bed to floating (still holding on), to kicking and splashing he eventually manages to get across the river all by himself. Very soon he is gliding and turning roly polies under water AND jumping off the high rock into the deep pool.
Delightful illustrations, simply written.
