"Nobody in Preston could remember when the water tower was built, or who had built it." On a scorching hot summer day, Spike and Bubba go for a swim in the old water tower and a series of strange events unfold. Gary lets readers draw their own conclusions about these events whilst Steven's illustrations complete the mystery. 
 
This intriguing picture book is one of our Centre Classics, delivered to students using PowerPoint, the book, original process materials and insights provided by Gary and Steven. Not held within the full exhibition.
