Here is a wonderfully onomatopoeic celebration of the delights of a wet (wet) day seen through the eyes of two exuberant children who at first would much prefer to travel by car.  If you are reading this aloud to a group, please practise first – it is full of traps for the unwary but once mastered is an absolute delight! The watercolour images all add to the ambience of a memorable day.
