The story line for this tale was developed in discussion with Matthew Bonthron (age 7).
The scenes are drawn from reality, based on a short holiday at Hoburne Holiday Park during August 2017. Hoburne is set in the midst of hundreds of flooded gravel pits which comprise the greater Cotswolds Water Park area.
The weather was warm and humid and we witnessed several massive thunder storms which created ideal conditions for the strange people called the Amphibios who live in the depths of Mallard Lake.
This story is suitable for boys and girls aged 6 to 9 to read alone or as a ‘read-to story’ for younger children.
