There is a pond in Desta’s garden, shaded by trees and surrounded by flowers. Desta loves the pond even though her mother warns her it’s dangerous. But how dangerous can it be, it’s just water?

Then the unthinkable happens. Desta falls into the pond and becomes small! And the only way out is through a dark underwater maze, where a host of terrifying creatures lurk. Spiders, water mites and beetles…

Everyone is out to get her, and to continue through the maze she must answer a series of tricky riddles and make her way past dangerous traps. Luckily, she doesn’t have to do it alone. For in the pond there lives the little tadpole Til, and together they can do anything.

The Adventure in the Water Maze is the first book in a new series by the acclaimed Emmy Abrahamson. A fast-paced, exciting and humorous story for the whole family. Colorful illustrations by Felicia Iversen.
