The Watertower

Author/Illustrator: Gary Crew and Steven Woolman

Publisher: Interlink Publishing

Suitable: Year 5 to Year 10


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 Crew lets readers draw their own conclusions about these events whilst Steven's illustrations add to the mystery. 

This intriguing picture book is one of our Centre Classics, delivered to students using PowerPoint, the book and process materials, not the original exhibition.
