In illustrated diary format, the hilarious tale of a boy who is a stellar swimmer - not! Swimming is just like flying, son! I can't fly either, Dad. You'll love swimming, Marcus! Marcus is a math whiz who is not good at sports. But his dad, a self-help author, is convinced otherwise. Just when Marcus hopes his dad had finally run out of sports for him to try, he discovers a new one - in water. Let's get a few things straight: Marcus is not a fish. Marcus is not a turtle. Marcus is an ordinary boy. He will not love to swim!

MY SWIMMING DIARY
Dad wants me to swim.
Dad wants me to SWIM!
DAD WANTS ME TO SWIM!!!
Do I look like a fish?
Or a turtle?
Or a duck?
That's not funny, Gemma.
My sister Gemma likes to write notes in my diaries.
I've tried to hide the diaries.
But she always finds them.
Mind you, I've thought of a really good spot to hide my diary this time. Gemma will never find it.
I'll wrap it in plastic ...
and lock it in a treasure chest ...
find a shipwreck ...
and hide it there ... deep under the sea!
That's where I'd hide my diary if I could swim ...
I'll love swimming exactly as much as I love ... spinach for dinner ...
