Matthew is a germaphobic child and a young detective
The Goldfish Boy - Lisa Thompson

Matthew is 12 and he is afraid of germs. 

 

This condition is triggered by the death of his baby brother who he didn't got the chance to meet in real life. He just know that his baby brother died and he thought it is his fault. 

 

So he tried to stay away from germs by being careful and clean. Also his need of staying away from germs make him stay home a lot and he was afraid to go to school. 

 

He watched his neighbors through the windows. He recorded what he saw in his notebooks. 

 

A toddler went missing and right before he was missed, Matthew was watching him through the window. 

 

Melody is a strange girl who wants to be Matthew's friend. They communicate via email. Now that the toddler Teddy is missing, and Matthew is house-bound. Melody is going to be his sick-kick investigator. 

 

Things got more interesting. There is also a bully called Jake who was Matthew's friend. 

 

The missing Toddler Teddy and the three young friends are going to solve this. 

 

The story is exceptionally touching. It is wonderful. 

 

Highly recommended it.

Reading progress update: I've read 285 out of 393 pages.
The Goldfish Boy - Lisa Thompson

Unexpected and very good story. Matthew is 12 and is afraid of germs. What I don't expected is the start of a Rear Window type of story. 

A toddler is missing and Matthew is the last person who saw the baby. So while the adults, parents, neighbors and police are all looking for the missing child, Matthew started his own investigation. 

 

As he didn't want to leave the house, he has a side-kick, Melody. 

 

Matthew suspected that it is a neighbors who had taken the child. And he is going to find out. 

 

Once it turned into an investigation, it run really well.

Jurassic Carp: My Big Fat Zombie Goldfis... Jurassic Carp: My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish - Mo O'Hara,Marek Jagucki

This is probably the most ridiculous of the series so far in terms of plans and plots, but it was quite enjoyable. These books are so weird, hilarious, and creative. They are great quick reads and are very unique.

In this book, the first story details the gang's strange experience at the medieval day reenactment. This one was pretty out there (there's no way that sling shot parachute plan would have worked), but it was still a fun story. Definitely not to be taken too seriously. The second story is a spoof of Jurassic Park with zombie goldfish, so obviously a good time.

Well-written, completely odd and enjoyable, with great illustrations that help break up the text and pair well with the narration. This book was a fun read and I'm excited to read some of the spin-offs featuring Mark and Sami.

My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish 5: Live and Let Swim - Mo O'Hara

I am never disappointed by this series. Such a fun, creative premise for a series and I love that each story is so different.

To be honest, I think "Agent Octopus-Sea" might be my favorite story in this series so far. Despite the fact I'm not really a James Bond/spy film person, there was just something so perfect about it. Fun way to learn about some ocean animals with all the same excitement and hilarity of the other stories.

This is such a fantastic series, especially for reluctant readers. Nice, simple writing that is very creative and stories that are easy to engage with. Great illustrations as well. I am always of fan of My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish.

My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish 4: Any Fin is Possible - Mo O'Hara,Marek Jagucki

Another wonderful zombie goldfish adventure, just the stress-reliever I needed right now. One thing I love about this series is its consistency. Each story is unique and different, but the quality, humor, and amazingness stays the same. With so many series, I find the later books not quite up to par with the first few, but these have all been great so far.

Both of the stories included in this book were fun, hilarious, and a pleasure to read. Nice, simple writing style that is easy to follow and makes the reader want to continue with the story. Great for reluctant readers. The pictures also help to break up the text and coincide well with the story.

Awesome book. I've already checked out the fifth book from the library and can't wait to read it.
