The Boy Who Wouldn't Swim by Deb Lucke

Lucke, Deb The Boy Who Wouldn’t Swim, illustrated by Deb Lucke. Clarion Books, 2008. $16.00 PICTURE BOOK This amusing tale brings to life the heat and stickiness of summer. As summer begins the whole town heads to the swimming pool, enjoying the break from the heat, everyone except Eric, that is. He just can’t seem to put aside his fear of the water and jump in the pool. And when he eventually does get in the water, it becomes impossible to get him out! EL – Advisable.
