‘You have got to start small,’ his sister said. ‘Small?’ said Scramble. ‘Yes, Small,’ she said. ‘Come on, today really is the day to start small. Believe it little brother, starting small turns can’t-do into can-do.’

Scramble is a young otter who can’t swim. Little by little he becomes more confident in the water until soon he is splashing and tumbling with his friends. At the heart of this gentle story about learning a new skill is its message of encouragement for toddlers everywhere.

‘Liquid, lithe and lyrical both in text and illustration, the book shares the idea that however enormous the task, starting small can lead to big achievements.’ - Carousel 41, March 2009

‘Sometimes you pick up a book and you just know that you’re going to love it – and this is one of those books. The illustrations… are a delight with muted colours capturing the spring countryside and the animals to perfection. They’re… gentle and unthreatening because the secret of this story is that all Scramble lacks is confidence.’ - The Bookbag
