Marty’s World: Meet Edmund

My bother is called Edmund.  
He’s soon 12 years old.
He enjoys going swimming, 
even when it is cold.
He loves going snorkelling 
at the seaside,
and plays by the rock pools 
when it is low tide. 
 
He wants to protect 
all the oceans and seas,
and make sure the water 
is all plastic-free.
His dream is to learn 
how to dive in the deep,
and see in real life 
a pretty “leaf sheep”. 
He loves the anemones,
sea snails and slugs,
and he’s equally friendly 
to beetles and bugs!
