Fish Kid and the Turtle Torpedo

By Kylie Howarth
Illustrated by Kylie Howarth

Two troubled turtles and one sinking friendship. Can Fish Kid save them all or will it end in turtle disaster?

Fish Kid’s third epic ocean adventure is set on a small island in the Maldives, the perfect place for Fish Kid to supercharge his fish powers. His friendship with bestie, Emely, soon hits a snag during a tricky sea turtle rescue. Secretly wishing for powers of her own, Emely’s strange behaviour leaves Fish Kid wondering if their friendship and the super-sick turtle will survive. And if things weren’t bad enough, another turtle from the sanctuary goes missing. Can this super hero-in-the-making use his fishy powers to save the day?

  • A perfect blend of fact and fiction by an author/illustrator who experiences her sea creatures first hand.
  • Excellent for independent readers who value a multitude of illustrations to enhance the storytelling.
  • Follow-up title to Fish Kid and the Lizard Ninja and Fish Kid and the Mega Manta Ray in which the author chooses a new ocean hero to star alongside Fish Kid.
