The Boy Who Swam With Piranhas

By David Almond


Reviewed by MG, Y6 Librarian


Have you ever wondered what it would be like to join a circus? On the other hand, maybe you would like to read about adventures! Well, The Boy Who Swam With Piranhas is just that. Stan, the main character, leaves with a circus and finds a surprise waiting for him. He likes being outdoors and does not like to wake up early, but he loves animals. This book is all about goldfish changing an ordinary boy’s emotions for fish, adventures, and piranhas. In addition, I do not want to spoil the ending for you, but you can work with the author to make a heart-melting finish for this book. This is a must readJ
