Ridley Bluefox and the Flying Fish of Fortune Falls by Carrie Percy is a fast-paced and witty chapter book.

Ridley, a famous fisherman at the young age of 12, seeks the ultimate challenge of catching a flying fish. Self-assured if not downright cocky, he is accustomed to travelling all over the world with his parents, adventurers whose combined résumés would put Indiana Jones to shame. On meeting a strange old man who gives him a box of caterpillars and urges him to try to catch a flying fish somewhere on a remote island in the South Pacific, Ridley sets out to further his fame, going first to England to meet a cantankerous old explorer who has been to the famed Fortuna Island, and then to the island itself to catch the fish that is supposed to be uncatchable.

A lively and fun adventure story for ages 7-10. mRb
