This beautiful book captures the eternal delight of young children splashing about in puddles and experimenting with language.
When the rain stops it's time to go puddle hunting.
Ruby and Banjo and Mum go up the street, and into the park, over the bridge and down to the riverflats where the puddles lie waiting...
Splosh it, Ruby! Splosh it, Banjo! Splosh it, Mum!
A glorious celebration of splashing and squelching all the way home.
