    This is the story of Oliver, a young boy who likes to ask lots of questions and if he doesn t get the answer he figures it out himself That s what leads him to build a submarine to go down the bathtub drain to figure out what makes the gurgling sound You ll never guess who he meets There are parts of this story that seem a bit disjointed, but I think children will enjoy it anyway.
