The Deep by Tim Winton

Fri 6 April 2018

Alice and her family live by the sea. She can already swim, but she's afraid of venturing out into the deeper water where she can't see or touch the bottom. Written by award-winning author, Tim Winton,  and beautifully illustrated by Karen Louise, this is a sweet story about overcoming your fear. Buy your own copy of The Deep, published by Fremantle Press, here, and listen to our interview with Tim Winton about the book on Kinderling Conversation.
