Bob has a cousin. He's called Dougal and the book about him begins with him getting on the train every day to go to work in an office. However, by the end of the book he's had so many adventures - he's learnt to swim among the brightly-coloured fish, found treasure, met mermaids, seen sharks and dolphins, and been interviewed for television. The idea of becoming a deep-sea diver all the time seems quite a good idea after that.
This is the cover of the book, and an illustration of Neptune from the day when Dougal had to borrow his fork. Inside the book you should find a CD so that you can hear Simon read the story himself.
