    DescriptionThe Little Blue Boat and the Secret of the Broads takes readers on an exciting journey in a race against time, through one of Britain's most magical waterways. A boat owner makes a final voyage from Essex to the Broads to give his small yacht to his grandchildren, but he's taken ill and the boat is left adrift at sea with just a small bear on board. The bear and boat have to make their way through the Norfolk waterways to find the children before they're seized by the authorities, or worse, stolen by the infamous Pincher Pete. Helped by the mysterious Marsh Man and numerous local birds and animals, the story unfolds and reveals the hidden secret of the Broads.
