Swimming season can be a splashing joy for some children and a nightmare of swimming lessons and the scary deep end for others. When Annie’s mom buys her a new swimming costume Annie doesn’t want to swim – the water is wet and splashy and deep. Then Miss Klara pairs her with Lisa – who swims just like a little sea otter. Will Lisa inspire her or intimidate her? A charming story about learning to swim, making friends and pushing your boundaries. Also available in Afrikaans.
