Ned Finn is a boy who knows what he wants. He wants an entertainment system for his room. He wants a break from his boy-crazy sister, Stacey, and for his little brother Billy to leave him alone. Heck, he just wants a normal set of parents.
But when Billy eats some of their father's experimental fish food and turns into a cod, Ned just wants to turn him back. Not only are Bill's new gills drawing the attention of the local school bully, they also attract the interest of Madge Sprod, an international spy with an evil plan.
When a slippery showdown at the local aquarium pits Ned and Billy against both their enemies and a killer whale, will Ned be able to save the day before his little brother becomes fish food?

After eating their dad¿s TOP SECRET Super-Strong Fish Chips for Scarce Sea Fish, Ned Finn¿s 6 year old brother, Billy, turns into an ugly gray cod. That¿s not the worse of it either. There is a spy looking to steal it. Will Ned and Stacy ( their older sister) get Billy back to normal? Will the spy steal the Fish Chips?
I have to admit Billy the Fish was better than I thought it would be. I really liked the care and concern that Ned had for his younger brother. You don¿t really read about that often. I also liked the uniqueness of this story. Charlie James did a great job on her first novel. Billy the Fish was funny, unique, and sweet.
Any age will enjoy the adventure of Ned Finn¿s story.
