Eric is about to make a splash ... Or is he?
The problem is that Eric is a worrier, and nothing worries him more than the thought of swimming. So when Eric receives an invitation to a pool party, he is sent into a worrying whirl. What if his fur gets wet? What if water goes in his eyes? What if he sinks to the bottom of the pool?
Fortunately, Eric has a brave and fearless friend who wants to help. But can she convince Eric that swimming is fun?
A positive and imaginative treatment of a very common childhood worry that is guaranteed to help allay the fears of little worriers everywhere.
