Description

When Morgan starts swimming lessons, he has lots of problems to deal with. There is the towel flicking and the slimy floor in the change room. There's the jiggles in his tummy he needs to cover up with his t-shirt and the scary possibility that his suit will drop to his knees when he jumps in. Worst of all, Aldeen Hummell, the Godzilla of Grade Three, has told him she will turn him into cat food if he doesn't cover for her while she plays hooky.
Once again Morgan finds himself dragged into Aldeen's plans. But by playing the clown, and facing his own fears, he thinks he can free himself from her clasp by helping her get her badge.
Morgan Makes a Splash is a hilarious story about gathering courage to cope with difficult situations.
