Pool by JiHyeon Lee

Published by Chronicle Books

Summary:  Imported from Korea, Pool is a wordless picture book in which two children meet at a crowded pool.  Diving under everyone’s feet, they swim off together into an underwater wonderland.  They explore schools of fish and other sea creatures, and even get close up to an enormous white whale.  Finally, they return to the legs and feet.  The crowd exits from one side of the pool, and the two of them get out on the other side.  At the end they take off their goggles and smile at each other, clearly the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Pros:  A magical journey of imagination.

Cons:  Some may judge the book by its cover and decide it looks a little freaky.
