Bestselling Picture Book Author DAVID GREENBERG LOVES TIME SWIMMER!

HIGH TIDE for Time Swimmer!


Waves of praise come in for Gerald's "Time Swimmer" from David Greenberg, US author of the crazy, now classic, picture book Slugs, which has been a bestseller since the 1980s. According to Gerald, David's a really tough critic. "I'm quite surprised he likes Time Swimmer this much. Was a wee bit afraid he might not go for it."

I've just started your book, and I love it. Just love it!

Boy, can you sling words. I adore the way you start with the almost-suicide, and I adore the way you mix the mundane (failing the test) with the fantastic (the sea turtle) with the men who want to chop its head off with the

voyage out to sea and the fact that it can talk. Extraordinary word craftsmanship from the very start.....

DAVID GREENBERG, picture book author, SLUGS
