Can a Funny Feline Learn to Swim? If a cat who hates to get wet can learn to swim, then anyone can overcome their fears: That's the message of this hilarious book about a fluffy, flustered kitty named Splat. Splat does not want to learn how to swim. He thinks water is horrible, scary...and wet! Worst of all, the dreaded Spike, his arch rival who breaks his toys and eats his candy fish, is in his swim class. Splat is sure that this is going to be the worst day ever. But when the rest of their classmates rush straight into the pool, Splat and Spike find that they may have more in common than they thought. Maybe these two enemies can encourage each other to dive in.
