First edition May 1, 2002
Mijn zus is een Flussemus is the second book of Syl.
It's summer and Emma is bored. Her friends are all gone and she can't play games with her sister Sanne, because Sanne is a girl with special needs. In fact, Sanne is like a big baby who has to laugh at words like 'flussemus'. For Emma it goes without saying that Sanne is like that, but it is also sometimes unfair. For example, why has Emma to go to those stupid summer swimming lessons and Sanne doesn't?

Emma doesn't feel like swimming lessons at all. She thinks it's stupid. She can float very well and if you float, you can also swim. Her fish Wimmelientje is lucky. She was born swimming and never needs to learn how to do backstroke and breaststroke. But she's not a fish.
She jumps out of bed. She has to practice.

The girl with the black wiggle tails stood next to Emma. "Do you also have to learn to swim from your father?" Emma nods. "But it is my mother who insisted most of all."

"Do you know the story of the fish that finds its bowl too small?" Emma asks.
