Dennis goes swimming.

Do you believe a bus can swim?

Dennis is desperate to make friends with Grumpy Geoff.  When Geoff tells a tale about the day he went swimming, Dennis is determined to show Geoff that he can swim as well so that they can be friends.

Things do not go as Dennis plans and it appears Geoff may not have been telling the whole truth!
