Fish by Gregory Mone is a fun story. You'll like it, especially if you like pirates. The main character is nicknamed "Fish" because he loves to swim, at a time when most people didn't even know how to float. He leaves his father's farm to make money for the family by working with his uncle, who is a city merchant. Through a series of events, Fish ends up swabbing the decks of a pirate ship, dealing with bullies, and searching for treasure. This book reminded me of the Pirates movies with Johnny Depp. Complete with stinky feet and bad breath, this funny adventure will certainly entertain you.
