Katie Catz is afraid to swim, so she doesn't know what to do when Brendan and Belinda Porker tell her they're having a pool party for their birthday. After all, scary monsters live in the water drains, and even worse, water can get up your nose and really hurt! Then Katie takes swimming lessons from ultracool Patsy Polarbear, and suddenly swimming is a lot of fun. And when it's finally time for the Porker twins' birthday party, Katie is ready to make a huge splash! Young swimmers will share Katie's fears and celebrate with her when she completes her first lap across the pool in this heartwarming story about taking a chance and being a good sport.
