The Swimmers by Joanne O'Callaghan



Meet Henry. Henry and his Dad just might be fish – all they want to do is swim!

You can dive, kick and splash along with both of them in this joyful story about Henry, his Dad, and their love for the water.

“An amusing, young, travelling, swimming boy who just wants to swim with his Dad anywhere in Hong Kong.  He also camps for a treat.  His Dad is in a swimming team (he wishes he was as well). He practices two times a week.   A nice piece of poetry that tumble turns into a bestseller.” – Bernie, Aged 8.
