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?

Fish Kid and the Turtle Torpedo is a gripping read on its own but to truly immerse yourself into the exciting world of Fish Kid, I recommend experiencing all three books in the series. And with an ocean-full of other fascinating finned creatures to explore, I hope this is not the last we see of Fish Kid.
Kids' Book Review
I adore the addition of facts about marine creatures, featured at the beginning of each chapter. This, combined with fun illustrations and the narrative makes for an original and informative read that will be sure to hook young readers!
