The Adventures of Team Pom: Squid Happens

By Isabel Roxas
Illustrated by Isabel Roxas

When oddballs Agnes, Roberta and Ruby discover a mutual passion for synchronised swimming, the trio form Team Pom. But they soon find that missed practices, aching limbs and low scores will be the least of their worries . . .

Tired of their last place, loser status, a crew of self-proclaimed weirdos start their own synchronised swimming club. But on their way to gain the respect and free snacks they deserve, they stumble upon a lonely giant squid in the school pool. Will he be the secret weapon they need to propel them into synchronised swimming super stardom? Or will they end up with ink on their faces? The first in this series, Squid Happens is a hilarious read that explores friendship, growing up and what it means to be yourself.

  • Perfect visual storytelling in a long form narrative makes this book great for all ages, including reluctant readers
  • First in a series of books from a budding new talent who is one to watch
