Fritz and Ben are the best of friends, and so it goes without saying they help each other with any problems, big or small. Just now, their biggest problem is swimming lessons. Ben was born with a hole in his heart, so his mother is over-protective and thinks he should ‘go easy’ on himself, which means poor Ben is never allowed to do any of the things boys enjoy doing. Ben and Fritz are getting really fed up, so they secretly try to turn Ben, who can’t swim, into an overnight sporting sensation! But that’s no easy task when someone’s so scared of water that they’re even frightened of bubble-baths!
the touching story of a close friendship between two very different boys who take on the world together
