: This story describes the unusual meeting and budding friendship between Wilf, a water nymph, and a boy who likes to be called Deano. They learn from each other as the boy helps the water nymph to return home. Deano hides Wilf from his mother but the nymph causes problems in the kitchen, so the two spend a day beside the local river instead. They have a happy day together, watching the wildlife and playing. The boy comes up with a plan to help the water nymph get home. Deano takes Wilf with him to school the following day, but that does not stop his mischief. Later that day, the boy goes to the river for a kayak lesson, accompanied by the nymph. The plan is to take Wilf upstream by kayak towards his possible home area. The new pals enjoy the peace and beauty of the evening. Deano paddles upstream as far as he dare without being missed. He explains the route that the water nymph needs to take, before they say their goodbyes. Wilf hitches rides on a dragonfly, an otter, a butterfly, a swan, a grasshopper, a pigeon and a toad on his journey towards home. His first attempt to find his home is unsuccessful but he generally enjoys the day. Wilf eventually gets back to familiar ground and he is warned, by various creatures, of the searches that have been going on to find him. He expects to be in serious trouble when he does get home. However, Wilf's family are overjoyed at his return and the water nymph community hold an impromptu party to celebrate.
