Somewhere in the world, there’s a thirsty kangaroo stranded in the desert, a frantic bee in a wilting garden, a muddy pig who yearns for a bath, a distressed baboon trapped in a forest fire and a fish in a rapidly shrinking pond. Thankfully, they all know just who to call for help with their water-related emergencies: three unlikely heroes in their shiny white steed, The Flying Bath!
It’s really easy to get used to life with all the modern comforts and conveniences that we enjoy, and take them for granted. (And god forbid if our lives are interrupted by #firstworldproblems such as faulty air-conditioning, a power outage, no internet connection or even low water pressure.) Thus, Anna Carries Water is a refreshing read in more ways than one.
