When oddballs Agnes, Roberta and Ruby discover a mutual passion for synchronised swimming, the trio form Team Pom. But between snack time, their favourite TV show and raising pigeons, it can be hard to find time to practice. 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 their local 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? Who are the villainous strangers in bowler hats? And, most importantly, what's for lunch? The first in this series and a debut comic book from award-winning Filipino illustrator Isabel Roxas, Squid Happens is a hilarious read that explores friendship, teamwork and what it means to be yourself.



What happend was that roberta and the team pom was really upset that tgey were last place in the swimming competion so they wanted to find more time to pracrise so they couldnt be last place again

This is the first graphic novel I've read and I liked it. It's a funny story. The characters set up their own swimming club. They find a giant squid in a pool and they help him get back to the ocean.

The book is alright. I would like it if the book was slightly longer. My favourite character was Cyd the squid because he is cute, funny and innocent.

I really liked it because there was a giant squid and it was really really funny. It turned out that some really good swimmers were actually really old because… you’ll have to read it and find out!
