Format: Paperback
Three troubleshooting fish tackle any problems that come their way. First problem they have to solve is how to relieve a whale from holding up an island so he can go on holiday. Second problem is rescuing a Green-Eyed Water Giraffe who is trapped in a giant clam. Along the way the intrepid trio meet a hobgoblin with magic boots, nine monkeys (one of which turns into Supermonkey), Wobbler the Dolphin and Umbrella The Gorilla.

This is a superbly funny, amazingly inventive story that has come from an incredibly imaginative mind. If you love quirky and humorous books then this is one for you. A fantastically fun read.

What can I say? Three fish detectives go off to rescue a green eyed water giraffe that has a flipper stuck in a giant clam, whilst helping an island whale get a holiday. Any book with this, plus supermonkey and a hobgoblin who cooks gourmet food on one boot and uses the other as a telephone, gets my vote

I read this book with my dad over and over when I was a child. Then lots more when I could read it all myself. It is a fantastic fun read. I now have a 3 year old son and have searched high and low for this book, as my copy was handed down through the family and eventually lost. I am so pleased that my son will get to read this wonderfully written and imaginative book.

My mum got this book from a charity shop when I was about 7 but I only got round to reading it about 2 years later. When I had finished I couldn't believe I'd put it off for so long! Since then I've read it countless times and it's still as funny as it was all those years ago (I'm now 22). I would recommend this book to anyone from the age of 7 to 70, as long as you have an imagination and sense of humour, you should love it. If there's any way you can get hold of a copy, do so as soon as possible, you don't know what you're missing!
