It was a lucky day for me when I won this book in a goodreads.com giveaway. What a treasure it is.

Delightful, insightful, enjoyable... I don't have enough words to properly praise this book. The writing is friendly and welcoming and the world beneath the waves is perfectly described. I felt as if I were there. And there's a nifty map!

Finnegan Blink's quest for adventure and to find his place in the world is told in a gentle tale that manages to not be dull.

I wasn't sure if this was a children's

I won this book in a giveaway from goodreads.

This is a pretty good book. I entered the giveaway because I thought that my little girl would like this book. Of course, being the awesome parent that I am, I had to read it first to make sure that it was age appropriate.

I am proud to announce that The Perils of Fishboy is appropriate for all ages. What a great book! At first, I thought it might be a little too Spongebob for me. What with all the undersea anthropomorphic creatures. However, this was

This book is built on the weirdest, most creative kids-book premise I've seen in a while. The storyline is half superhero origin story, half Arthurian adventure, but with a steampunk-ish backdrop and a down-to-earth, American flavor. Moves at a slow and steady pace for the most part, and ends with some major questions unresolved, ripe for a sequel. The overall message is good, the main characters are friendly and likable, the bad guys are cruel and unusual, and the illustrations are absolute ...more

I was going through a bunch of books that I have read but not reviewed on goodreads... Cory Basil has quickly become one of my favorite writers. I encourage everyone to check out his website www.hereliescorybasil.com He is a writer, artist, musician and a lot more.

Just looking at his writing he already has a poetry book (another on the way), The Perils of Fishboy (this book), the sequel coming out shortly and recently put out a reader that has poetry, short stories and even photography.

Fishboy has a problem: he's evolving. Well, the problem isn't really that he's evolving; it's that the other fish aren't and it makes him look like a freak. He doesn't feel like he fits in very well, most of the other fish don't understand him so he doesn’t have friends his own age, and the headmaster of the prestigious school he attends wants him dead. Those are his real problems.

However, Fishboy also has friends and an unbeatable spirit of adventure. This is a book for anyone who has ever been

Here I am, reading Fishboy for the second time! It is that good.

Although this is a “childrens novel”, it certainly does not feel simplistic. Rather, the twists and turns are enchanting and the child-like wonder feels so refreshing. I find myself wrapped up in the story, and I can’t put the book down.

I’ve been a fan of Cory’s poetry for quite some time now. “The Perils of Fishboy” seems like a natural extension of his unique voice.

Cory’s imaginative story not only captures the reader in the suspe

Cory Basil is an American author, painter and filmmaker. Blending gothic romanticism with modern poetic rhythm, Basil's poems trust emotional honesty over the dubious truths to be gleaned from appearances. This philosophy also reigns in his paintings, where he conjures with a renaissance artist's reverence for colour and light, revealing the soul of a baroque spectacle.

Raised in Phoenix, Ariz., Ba
