“My 8 year old read this book to me, my husband and our 2 year old and afterwards he told us that the moral to the story is the importance of having the same unconditional love and respect for animals as we should have for people. This book is a really good reading with an excellent message”.

Have you ever heard of a fish that’s afraid to swim?

Well then, you have to meet Lucky. He is the only jellyfish who can control his stinger…but he is the only jellyfish as well who cannot swim.

He is called an outcast and a wimp because he is scared of swimming, despite having the best swimmers for parents. His sister told him to be more confident and to trust in his abilities.

And even if Lucky really liked his school, he can’t always compete in his classes. Everything involved swimming. His schoolmates don’t take kindly to a fish who cannot swim.

Then one day, Lucky found out that there is another thing that he can do. He can float above sea level. He can see people playing music and dancing to a Kanye West song. It’s almost like one of the end of the year fish school dances that they have. He was so absorbed in watching the scene before his eyes that when a motor boat sped past him, he was pushed by a strong wave into the beach.

That’s where he met Sammy, the little boy in the beach who cannot catch a ball…and his life changed forever.

What could Sammy teach Lucky? Will Lucky finally get lucky and learn how to swim?

Find out all of that through the pages of The Fish That Was Afraid To Swim.
