A heartwarming story from textile designer and illustrator Lisa Stickley
Bernard has been the manager of the local swimming pool for a long time, and practices his diving at night when no one else is around. When his pool holds a contest for high-diving hounds from around the world, he hopes that he can work up enough courage to compete. This lovely story from the author of The Wobbly Waitressis a heartwarming tale about trying new things, even when we might need some help to find the courage to do them.
