Nervous Nigel / Bethany Christou.


Nigel loves swimming. The water is his favorite place to be, and he comes from a long line of swimming champions. His mother is the fastest swimmer in crocodile history, and his sister was the first crocodile to get a perfect diving score. But Nigel doesn't like competitions. His heart hammers when the whistle blows, and his tail trembles when he hears the shouting from the sidelines. But he doesn't want to disappoint his family, so he never tells them how he really feels. And when they enter him in his first real competition, Nigel doesn't know what to do. Will he ever find the courage to tell his family the truth?
