But then someone gives her some beads which have magical properties. In the second story Connie and the Waterbabies, Connies and her twin siblings go swimming except Connie hates the water. Then Nurse Meade gives Connie some more beads. And when they clack together, suddenly Connie can swim like a mermaid...

Synopsis

Twin Tales by Jacqueline Wilson

Twin Trouble : Connie's not happy. Her parents are having a baby. Well, not one, but two babies! Why do they need more children? They've got her! Soon the house is filled with dirty nappies and screaming babies and Connie's expected to help. And no one pays any attention to her. It's not fair. So when Nurse Meade puts some blue beads in her hair, Connie's delighted. And when she clacks them together, things start to happen...Soon, everyone can see things from Connie's point of view. Connie and the Water Babies : Connie is scared of water. She can't swim and she hates going to the pool. Everyone says she should go because she'll love it, and even Charles and Claire, the twins, like the water. Typical. Then Nurse Meade gives Connie some more blue beads. And when they clack together, suddenly Connie can swim like a mermaid...These are the two reassuring stories about family strife and overcoming your fears from a master storyteller.
