Fat Boy Swim

by Catherine Forde
£6.99   paperback  Egmont Childrens Books (2008)

Fat Boy Swim by Catherine Forde From award-winning author, Catherine Forde, comes Fat Boy Swim, a story that will make you realise that anything is possible.
 
Jimmy Kelly is fat.
 
Lardy.
 
Ginormous.
 
Clinically obese.
 
Inside, Jimmy doesn't feel like Smelly Kelly, Fat Boy Fat. He's just normal. His bedroom's a pit. His feet stink. He hates getting up on school mornings. If any of his classmates bothered to talk to him, instead of slagging him off, they'd find he was just as clued up as they were on films, on books, on telly, even on sport. But he wouldn't tell them that his secret talent is cooking.
 
But Jimmy has another secret that even he doesn't know yet. A secret that will change him forever.
