Fish

 

by Gregory Mone

 

 

 

 

Review from School Library Journal:

As Fish travels from farm to city to ship, he discovers his place in the world, and his moral compass helps to ground and direct the story. His decision not to engage in fighting and his efforts to stop the mutiny will provide points for group discussion. Fish makes a splashing good addition to adventure fiction."

The novel, Fish follows the adventures of a young pirate named Maurice Reidy. Nicknamed “Fish” because of his incredible swimming abilities, he is sent to work for his uncle as a courier to help support his struggling family. He is entrusted with a mysterious package of coins, but is attacked by a boy pirate who steals the package of coins. Determined to get the coins back and not disappoint his uncle, he joins the strange, funny, and foul-smelling crew of pirates, beginning an adventure that changes his life forever. On board the pirate ship, Fish learns that the strange coins could be the key to finding a fabulous treasure. While trying to avoid violence — refusing to use a weapon — he lands in trouble more than once, yet he does manage to make a few friends.
