    Review: "Fish Finelli" was an advance readers' copy se

    Review: "Fish Finelli" was an advance readers' copy sent to Alamance Christian School (set to be released on April 16, 2013) and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I whole-heartedly agree with the above statement from the back of the book -- "a must read." While the "genre" of the book is listed for middle school, it is easily suitable for 4th grade and up. It is a "kid friendly" read, packed full of adventure.

    While reading the story, you will find tidbits of information on the sides of the pages that make the story even more interesting. Such as who Marco Polo is, what an osprey is, how the microwave came to be, and even that gum is made from rubber. The "tidbits" are short and easy for the reader to remember.

    This first book in this new children's series is great and I look for to future additions!! (reviewer P.Howard)
